UK, new allegations of sexual harassment for Kevin Spacey


LONDON – The legal troubles continue in the United Kingdom for Kevin Spacey, a 63-year-old American actor and producer with British citizenship. A London court allowed seven additional sexual abuse charges against him: three of “indecent assault”, three of sexual assault and one charge of “inducing a person to engage in sexual activity without consent”. The new charges bring the total against the Oscar-winning actor to 12.

Accusations old and new

After examining evidence gathered by Scotland Yard, the prosecutor’s office said the new offenses alleged relate to a series of sexual assaults against a man between 2001 and 2004. Last month the Hollywood actor, who in the past he was also artistic director of the Old Vic theater in London, he was acquitted by an American civil court of the charge of having committed sexual abuse against a boy who, at the time of the disputed facts (1980s) was 14 years old. In July he went to a London court to deny five charges relating to three men, now in their 30s and 40s. At the end of the hearing he was granted bail until a further hearing scheduled for next year.

New trial in June

Rosemary Ainslie, head of the Special Crimes Division of the CPS (Crown Prosecution Service, the public prosecution ed) reminded “all concerned” that the criminal case against Spacey “is active” and that “he has the right to a fair trial”. Judge Wall has scheduled a three to four-week trial starting June 6 next year.The House Of Cards star has a home in Waterloo, south London, but also lives in the US, where he has family It’s a dog.
