Kevin Spacey to appear in court on sexual assault charge

Kevin Spacey to appear in court on sexual assault charge

Former "House of Cards" star Kevin Spacey will appear in a Nantucket court on Monday on accusations that he groped a young man in 2016. The judge ordered the disgraced actor must stay away from the young man.

The actor's legal team claims, however, that they believe text messages from the alleged victim and his girlfriend could prove that Spacey did not assault the man, but rather that the interaction was consensual. He will not, however, be required to attend the next pre-trial hearing scheduled for March 4th.

He said the actor would not need to appear then, but should be available by phone. Spacey Attorney Alan Jackson said there is data that is "likely exculpatory" for Spacey. The alleged victim was 18 at the time when he claims Kevin assaulted him after getting him drunk at the Club Car Restaurant in Nantucket in 2016.

He is accused of groping an 18-year-old waiter.

"My client is a determined and encouraging voice for those victims not yet ready to report being sexually assaulted", he said, in an email sent on Monday morning.

News. "My client is leading by example".

In addition to the Nantucket case, two other investigations are under way in Los Angeles and London, where Mr Spacey served as artistic director of the prestigious Old Vic theater from 2004 to 2015. He made a decision to come forward and tell police because he did not want what happened to him to happen to someone else, he said in the complaint.

The Associated Press does not typically identify people alleging sexual assault. At the same time, his lawyers requested that he be able to skip the first day in court to avoid heightening "the negative publicity already generated in connection with the case". Instead of being asked to enter a plea, the judge told him that if another charge is filed against him while this case is open, he could be held for 90 days without bail.

The alleged victim is the son of former television news presenter Heather Unruh, who spoke publicly about the incident a year ago.

After the formal charge against him was announced, Spacey released a video in which he seemed to attempt to refute the charges.

If convicted, Spacey, 59, faces as many as five years in prison.

In October 2017, actor Anthony Rapp told BuzzFeed News that Spacey tried to sexually proposition him when he was 14 and Spacey was 26.

Once one of Hollywood's most famous and recognizable actors, Spacey's career collapsed in November 2017 following several allegations of sexual assault and harassment.
