Kevin Spacey expected in court Monday to face sex assault charges

Kevin Spacey

The actor on Monday was arraigned in Nantucket, Massachusetts, where he allegedly sexually assaulted an 18-year-old at a bar in 2016.

However, according to Spacey's attorneys, the woman told law enforcement that at no time while she was receiving contemporaneous contact from the alleged victim did he ever describe himself as being the victim of a sexual assault. His lawyer is claiming these records are proof that Spacey did not assault the victim in a Nantucket bar.

Spacey's defense team has said the young man's delay in reporting the incident undermines the credibility of his claims. "He's the worst of the worst", Fowler said, adding he supported Spacey's accusers. But Judge Thomas Barrett denied Spacey's request. Spacey has said he intends to plead not guilty.

Mexican actor Roberto Cavazos, who performed in several Old Vic productions, said "it seems that it only took a male under 30 to make Mr Spacey feel free to touch us".

The civil attorney for the accuser said in a statement ahead of the hearing that his client is "leading by example".

Spacey is one of dozens of men in the entertainment industry and politics who have been accused of sexual misconduct in the past 10 months, partly as a result of the #MeToo social media movement.

Last week, Spacey's attorneys had asked that he be allowed to waive his right to be physically present at Monday's arraignment, saying he lived out-of-state and believed his presence would "amplify the negative publicity already generated" in the case. Spacey does not have to appear. The teen said he texted and Snapchatted his girlfriend during the incident, including the video.

According to NBC News, the case first came to light in November 2017 after the Boston anchor, Heather Unruh, held a press conference and alleged Spacey groped her son's genitals at The Club Car.

Actor Kevin Spacey appeared in Nantucket District Court in Nantucket, Mass., where he faces a sexual assault charge.

Forced out of public life, Spacey posted a video online in December in which he discussed allegations of sexual abuse in character as Frank Underwood, the scheming politician he played in "House of Cards" before the show dropped him. It was unclear whether he was referring to the charge.

First, actor Anthony Rapp accused Spacey of making a sexual advance toward him in 1986 when he was 14 years old and Spacey was 26, Rapp told BuzzFeed News.

"Spacey never said a word", member station WBUR's Frederic Thys reports.
