Is Kevin Spacey off the hook for `92 sexual misconduct allegation?

Adjust Comment Print

The particular allegation against Spacey that will not be pursued related to an adult man who accused the actor of sexually assaulting him in West Hollywood in October of 1992.

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.

The District Attorney's office said in a charge evaluation sheet released on Tuesday that the allegation was outside the statue of limitations and that prosecution had been declined. The allegations, which he has repeatedly denied, have been levelled by actresses, film workers and reporters.

Anderson "unequivocally disputes the claim" against him, and authorities have not contacted him about it, a representative for the actor said in a statement. Both have been accused in other alleged assault cases now under review by the task force established by District Attorney Jackie Lacey a year ago to assess the wave of sexual harassment-related police reports filed in the wake of the #MeToo movement. A sexual battery allegation from 2016 in Malibu is still under review by the district attorney. At least six accusations of sex crimes are being investigated by London's Metropolitan Police.

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

CNN Analyst Calls Trump Tweet ‘Impeachable Offense’
Trump would probably argue that he's saying no indictments should be handed down this close to an election, regardless of party. Rarely, though, has he made it so explicit that he views the Justice Department as a political tool that is now being misused.

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

Earlier this year, Regina Simons, an extra who appeared in Seagal's 1994 film On Deadly Ground, accused Seagal of rape after numerous women came forward with accounts of sexual misconduct.

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

He was also sacked from Netflix's House Of Cards and edited out of Sir Ridley Scott's All The Money In The World.
