Kevin Spacey charged with sexual assault of men in UK court today

Oscar-winning actor Kevin Spacey is due to appear in court on charges of sexually assaulting three men.

The 62-year-old Hollywood star is expected to face four counts of sexual assault and one count of engaging in penetrative sexual activity without a man’s consent at Westminster Magistrates Court on Thursday.

The charges relate to three men, now in their 30s and 40s, in London and Gloucestershire between 2005 and 2013, while Spacey was artistic director of the Old Vic Theater in London.

The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) authorized charges against him last month, but the American could formally be charged only after he had traveled to the UK earlier this week.

The charges are: two counts of sexual assault in March 2005 in London on a man who is now 40 years old; sexually assaulting a man, now 30, in London in August 2008, and engaging him in penetrative sexual activity without consent; Sexual assault on a man, now 30, in Gloucestershire in April 2013.

Spacey, a two-time Oscar winner best known for roles in American Beauty, The Usual Suspects and House of Cards, has previously said he will travel to the UK to face charges, which he hopes to deny. Is.

In a statement issued to Good Morning America following the CPS’s announcement, he said: “While I am disappointed by their decision to proceed, I will voluntarily appear in the UK as soon as possible and defend myself against these allegations, which I believe I will prove my innocence.”

The most serious charge of engaging a man in penetrative sexual activity without consent is an indictment, meaning it can only be tried in Crown Court.

Spacey, whose court documents give the address as an apartment in Waterloo, central London, was artistic director at the Old Vic between 2004 and 2015.
