Kevin Spacey Subject of Sex Crimes Review by L.A. District Attorney's Office
Los Angeles prosecutors are reviewing a sexual assault case against Kevin Spacey.
A sexual assault accusation against Oscar-winning actor Kevin Spacey is under review by the Los Angeles District Attorney's Office.
The county sheriff's department presented the results of its investigation into a sexual assault case filed by an adult male over an alleged 1992 incident in West Hollywood. The prosecutor's office is currently reviewing it and will decide whether to press charges, spokesman Greg Risling told Reuters.
The former "House of Cards" actor has been accused by more than 30 men of unwanted sexual advances. He is one of the most prominent Hollywood celebrities to be accused of sexual misconduct following film producer Harvey Weinstein's downfall, which launched the #MeToo movement.
Spacey's spokeswoman declined comment Wednesday.
The 58-year-old actor has kept a low profile since "Rent" actor Anthony Rapp accused him of trying to seduce him in 1986 when Rapp was 14.
Spacey sparked controversy when he apologized, and simultaneously came out of the closet.
"If I did behave as he describes, I owe him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior, and I am sorry for the feelings he describes having carried with him all these years," Spacey said.
Reaction was swift. He was fired from the Netflix series "House of Cards" and replaced by Christopher Plummer in Ridley Scott's "All the Money in the World." At the time, the film was just weeks away from its release.
Plummer later earned Golden Globe and Oscar nominations for his role.
Robin Wright, who starred opposite Spacey as Claire Underwood, is now the sole star of "House of Cards."
