Sex assault allegations against Kevin Spacey under review by Los Angeles prosecutors

Sex assault allegations against Kevin Spacey under review by Los Angeles prosecutors

The Los Angeles County district attorney's office is reviewing a case of alleged sexual abuse involving Oscar-winning actor Kevin Spacey, officials said Wednesday.

Actor Another Rapp claims Spacey made a sexual advance towards him at a party in 1986.

The case was presented to the Los Angeles District Attorney's entertainment industry sex crimes task force on April 5, for review and filing consideration.

Following the allegations, Netflix announced that Spacey would not be involved with any further production of "House of Cards".

Investigators from the department's Special Victims Bureau began an investigation in December, a few weeks after the actor was first publicly accused of sexual misconduct by actor Anthony Rapp. Since then, numerous men have accused Spacey of groping them.

London cops were already investigating two similar complaints lodged against Spacey, who was artistic director at The Old Vic theatre from 2004 to 2015. "I want to see Kevin Spacey have the hand of justice come down on him, not just for my son, but for the many others who have yet to speak their truth". Heather Unruh, mother to the victim and a former Boston news anchor, said Spacey bought her son several drinks and "stuck his hand inside my son's trousers and grabbed his genitals".

In response to the allegations, Spacey tweeted that he was "beyond horrified to hear [Rapp's] story", adding that he did not remember the encounter. In addition to being dropped from the sixth and final season of House of Cards, Spacey was erased from the movie All the Money in the World, and actor Christopher Plummer was brought in take over his role and reshoot all of Spacey's scenes. Then, she said, Spacey stuck his hand down her son's trousers at the bar.
