L.A. District Attorney May Bring Charges Against Accused Abuser Kevin Spacey

Kevin Spacey

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department presented a sexual assault case against Kevin Spacey to the district attorney last Thursday, reports The Hollywood Reporter. The Oscar-winning actor was accused of sexual assault by a number of men during the #MeToo movement, leading to authorities in both the U.S. and the United Kingdom — where he often worked — opening criminal investigations against him.

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

Spacey's alleged penchant for sexual abuse was first detailed by Star Trek: Discovery star Anthony Rapp, who claimed Spacey made sexual advances toward him when he was a 14-year-old actor. Rapp first told The Advocate about the incident in 2001, but the story didn't mention Spacey's name. The story resurfaced in an October account to Buzzfeed, following the floodgates of abuse reports opening in the wake of Ronan Farrow's exposé of alleged sexual predator Harvey Weinstein. Since then, numerous men have accused Spacey of groping them.

Following the accusations, Spacey was fired 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.

Spacey has yet to comment on the Sheriff's Department's case.
