Spacey avoids prosecution in assault claims

Kevin Spacey Alan Yentob in conversation with Kevin Spacey at JW3 London Britain- 25 Nov 2013

Prosecutors in Los Angeles have said they will not file charges against Kevin Spacey over an alleged sexual assault in 1992 because too much time has passed.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office made no comments today on the merits of the accusations.

Spacey, the Oscar-winning star of American Beauty, is one of dozens of men in the entertainment industry and politics who have been accused of sexual misconduct in the past 10 months, partly as a result of the #MeToo social media movement.

Prosecutors declined to charge Spacey in an October 1992 case, saying the date was beyond the period in which a charge could be filed.

The statute of limitations has also reportedly passed for Seagal's case, and the reporting party declined to be interviewed for the case against Anderson.

Spacey, 59, is being investigated in the United Kingdom for six sexual assault claims over 22 years.

Prosecutors also declined to charge Anderson, best-known as the father in TV sitcom Black-ish, after a woman reported to police that she had been raped and sexually abused earlier this year by the actor. "So there was a "lack of sufficient evidence" to proceed with a case", the L.A. County District Attorney's Office said.

Trump says ‘no political necessity’ to keep Canada in new NAFTA deal
He also called out Canada for 'decades of trade abuse, ' saying if the two nations can't negotiate a fair deal, talks will be off.

Beverly Hills police previous year investigated Seagal after a woman reported he had raped her on January 1, 1993.

The Old Vic theatre said it has received 20 allegations of inappropriate behaviour against Spacey.

This isn't the first time Anthony has had such cases pinned against him.

Spacey became embroiled in controversy in 2017 when actor Anthony Rapp accused him of trying to seduce him in 1986 when Rapp was 14.

In the case of Seagal, the allegation of assault is from 1993, when the victim was 18 years old.

Mr Spacey claimed to have no memory of the events but publicly apologised.

The allegations against Spacey saw him dropped from Netflix series House of Cards and replaced by another actor in All the Money in the World.
