Prosecutors Reviewing a Sex Crime Case Against Kevin Spacey from 1992

  • Spacey was one of the first to face public allegations following Harvey Weinstein's downfall

The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office confirmed that it is reviewing a sex crimes case against actor Kevin Spacey.

The county sheriff's department presented results of its investigation of the matter to the district attorney last week, five months after Spacey was sacked from the Netflix television drama House of Cards over sexual misconduct accusations.

No additional information was made available. It is being considered by a task force established by the District Attorney's Office to review allegations of sexual abuse in the entertainment industry.

Following Rapp's accusations, Kevin Spacey responded in a fashion that many found offensive-choosing then to publically come out as a gay man after years of silence about his sexuality. It was unclear if California's statute of limitations on prosecuting criminal sexual assault, which is normally 10 years, would apply.

The Oscar victor was named and shamed by actor Anthony Rapp in an online expose previous year (17), when it was revealed he had been sexually assaulted by Spacey when he was 14. Almost all - if not all - of those alleged incidents, however, occurred years ago and fall well beyond the one-year statute of limitations.

The dispute has bounced between the district court, patent office and Federal Circuit since 2010. Damages were based upon sales of more than 400 million Apple devices, according to Bloomberg .


Spacey apologised to Rapp and his former publicist said he was seeking unspecified treatment.

The Academy Award victor was first publicly accused of sexual misconduct in October.

Spacey is also under investigation by police in England, where more than 20 men have accused him of inappropriate behavior during his 11-year tenure as artistic director of London's Old Vic Theatre.

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

Since reports have emerged about his alleged assaults, Spacey was removed from a film he was starring in, All the Money in the World, and was subsequently fired from the final season of House of Cards. Plummer went on to earn Golden Globe and Oscar nominations for the role.
