Kevin Spacey faces new assault probe in US

Kevin Spacey under review by LA sex crimes prosecutors

An LA county sheriff spokesman Nicole Nishida mentioned the drive's "particular victims bureau started an investigation into allegations of a sexual assault involving Mr Kevin Spacey on December 11, 2017". Rapp alleged in October that Spacey made a pass at him when he was 14 years old during a party at Spacey's NY apartment in 1986.

Details about the case have yet to be divulged to the public, but Spacey could face criminal charges.

Although several men have come forward to accuse Spacey of alleged sexual assault since Star Trek actor Anthony Rapp shared his account of what he says happened with Spacey when he was 14 years old, this is the first indication that Spacey's actions could have potential legal ramifications.

In response to the allegations, Spacey tweeted that he was "beyond horrified to hear [Rapp's] story", adding that he did not remember the encounter.

Prosecutors are reviewing a decades-old sex crimes case against disgraced actor Kevin Spacey.

"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", he said. Then, she said, Spacey stuck his hand down her son's trousers at the bar.

Last November, Spacey's publicist said in a statement that the actor was "taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment".

Netflix announced previous year that it had severed all ties with Spacey and that it would not be involved with any further production of "House of Cards" that included him. Spacey won a Golden Globe for best actor in a TV series for his role in the Netflix original in 2015.

Following the accusations, Spacey was sacked from his hit Netflix show House of Cards and his scenes refilmed with another actor in Ridley Scott's film All the Money in the World.
