Sexual assault case against Kevin Spacey under review

The 58-year-old is already being investigated in England and Massachusetts

Los Angeles prosecutors are re-examining an accusation of sexual assault against Kevin Spacey. It was unclear if California's statute of limitations on prosecuting criminal sexual assault, which is normally 10 years, would apply. The case was presented by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department last Thursday; no further details were provided.

Police have officially filed evidence with the Los Angeles District Attorney concerning an incident between the disgraced actor and another man that occurred in West Hollywood in October 1992.

It is the first police investigation to name Spacey, 58, as a suspect in Los Angeles since the sheriff's department's Special Victims Bureau began investigating allegations of a sexual assault involving Spacey on December 11.

Spacey was first accused of sexual assault in October when actor Anthony Rapp recounted an encounter he had with Spacey while working as a 14-year-old child actor on Broadway in 1986.

According to the BBC, a spokeswoman for the actor declined to comment.

More than 30 men have said they were victims of unwanted sexual advances by Spacey, one of the most prominent Hollywood figures to be publicly accused of sexual misconduct since accusations against movie producer Harvey Weinstein sparked the #MeToo movement on social media.

Last November, Unruh claimed Spacey "stuck his hand down my son's trousers and grabbed his genitals" at a bar in Nantucket.

Authorities on Cape Cod have not yet brought any charges against Spacey in connection with that case. Spacey responded with an apology of sorts, saying that he did not remember the encounter. London cops were already investigating two similar complaints lodged against Spacey, who was artistic director at The Old Vic theatre from 2004 to 2015.

He was sacked from Netflix's House of Cards and erased from the film All The Money In The World, with the reshoots costing millions of dollars.
