LA prosecutors decline Kevin Spacey sexual assault case

LA prosecutors decline Kevin Spacey sexual assault case

The Los Angeles District Attorney's Hollywood sex crimes task force has announced today that they'll not be charging Kevin Spacey, Steven Seagal or Anthony Anderson with sexual assault.

"The allegation is outside the statute of limitations, therefore an analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the evidence is not warranted and prosecution is declined", according to the charge evaluation sheet.

Spacey had been accused of assaulting a man in West Hollywood in 1992.

The alleged events in the case against Spacey - one of dozens of allegations that have been leveled against him by men in the US and overseas over the previous year - occurred in 1992.

The statute of limitations reportedly passed in the Spacey and Seagal cases, whereas Anderson's alleged victim "refused to cooperate with investigators", according to Variety.

Spacey is being investigated in the United Kingdom for six sexual assault claims over 22 years.

Spacey was artistic director at London's The Old Vic theatre between 2004 and 2015.

Actor Kevin Spacey will not be prosecuted over the latest sexual assault claim against him.

Mr Spacey claimed to have no memory of the events but publicly apologised.

Seagal - a Russian citizen who was named in August as the Kremlin's newest special envoy to the United States - has faced more than half a dozen allegations of sexual assault, including rape, over several decades.

In the case of Seagal, the allegation of assault is from 1993, when the victim was 18 years old. In a statement, Spacey said he did not recall the incident.

Actor Steven Seagal has had years of accusations levelled at him. "Anthony unequivocally disputes the claim". He has largely retreated from public view since the allegations became public, and he was sacked from the hit Netflix series "House of Cards".
