American Actor Kevin Spacey Charged With Sexual Assault
Hollywood star Kevin Spacey was today charged with a string of sexual offences in Britain over eight years.
The star, 62, is being prosecuted for four counts of sexual assault against three men between 2005 and 2013 in London and Gloucestershire.
He is also accused of ‘causing a person to engage in penetrative sexual activity without consent’.
The Crown Prosecution Service today revealed one man claims he was sexually assaulted twice in March 2005. A second man claims that in August 2008 he was sexually assaulted and then forced to engage in a sex act against his will. All these alleged incidents took place in London.
Finally the third complainant said he was sexually assaulted in April 2013 in Gloucestershire.
Spacey, the star of some of Hollywood’s biggest hits of the past three decades as well as TV shows such as House of Cards, was artistic director of the Old Vic Theatre in London between 2004 and 2015.
Rosemary Ainslie, head of the CPS Special Crime Division, said today: ‘The CPS has authorised criminal charges against Kevin Spacey, 62, for four counts of sexual assault against three men.
‘He has also been charged with causing a person to engage in penetrative sexual activity without consent. The charges follow a review of the evidence gathered by the Metropolitan Police in its investigation.
‘The Crown Prosecution Service reminds all concerned that criminal proceedings against Mr Spacey are active and that he has the right to a fair trial.’
