Kevin Spacey sexual assault case reviewed by Los Angeles District Attorney

The case was presented on April 5

The Los Angeles District Attorney is reviewing a sexual assault case against Kevin Spacey, according to reports.

The actor was accused of sexual misconduct by Star Trek actor Anthony Rapp late last year. Rapp said Spacey made sexual advances towards him when he was 14 years old. US filmmaker Tony Montana and Mexican actor Roberto Cavazos have also made allegations against the star.

The new case was presented to prosecutors on Thursday (April 5) by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s department, NBC News reports. It is now under review by the District Attorney’s Office Sex Crimes Task Force.

No further details on the case have been made available at present.

The 58-year-old actor issued a statement via a representative when the initial claims against him were made. It read: “Kevin Spacey is taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment. No other information is available at this time.”

Following the first allegations that came out involving Rapp, Spacey responded in a statement, saying that he did not recall the incident but that he was “sorry for the feelings [Rapp] describes having carried with him all these years”.

He also addressed “stories” about his personal life, confirming that he now “lives as a gay man”. Spacey’s statement was criticised by LGBTQ organisations, with some campaigners arguing that his coming out was an attempt to “deflect” from the allegations.

Following the initial allegations against Spacey, Netflix confirmed that season 6 of House Of Cards would be its last and the actor was erased from All The Money In The World, with scenes re-shot by Christopher Plummer.
