Kevin Spacey will be charged with seven more accounts of sexual offences, in relation to one complainant.
The Crown Prosecution Service has today (16 November) confirmed that actor Kevin Spacey will be charged with seven more accounts of sexual offences. They are all related to one male complainant and the offences took place from 2001 to 2005.
These new charges include three offences of indecent assault, three offences of sexual assault and one offence of causing a person to engage in sexual activity without consent.
Rosalie Ainsley of the Crown’s Prosecution Service said in a statement: “The CPS has authorised additional criminal charges against Kevin Spacey, 63, for a number of sexual assaults against one man between 2001 and 2004.
“The CPS has also authorised one charge of causing a person to engage in sexual activity without consent. The authority to charge follows a review of the evidence gathered by the Metropolitan Police in its investigation.”
Spacey is already facing five charges of sexual offences in the UK. His trial is scheduled for June 2023.
The House of Cards actor has pleaded not guilty to all charges.
Recently, a New York court ruled that there was not enough evidence that Spacey sexually abused actor Anthony Rapp in 1986 when Rapp was 14.
