Prosecutors in Los Angeles have said they will not file charges against Kevin Spacey anymore over an alleged sexual assault that happened in 1992 because lots of time has been spent.
A man accused Kevin of assaulting him in West Hollywood in October 1992. However, prosecutors said the case could not be taken forward because the year of the alleged crime falls outside of California’s statute of limitations.
Prosecutors are reviewing another case involving the 59-year-old that includes allegations he attacked another man in Malibu in October 2016.
The case remains under investigation.
Prosecutors have also decided not to file charges against actors Steven Seagal and Anthony Anderson over alleged sex crimes.
In Seagal’s case, the statute of limitations had passed, while for Anderson the accuser declined to be interviewed by authorities.
Spacey is being investigated in the UK for six sexual assault claims over the past 22 years.
American actor Anthony Rapp was the first to make an allegation against Spacey, claiming he was 14 when Spacey 26 years old then, made a sexual advance to him in 1986.
Spacey has faced a number of repercussions since allegations against him emerged. He was dismissed from Netflix’s House of Cards and edited out of Sir Ridley Scott’s All the Money in The World.
Spacey was artistic director at London’s The Old Vic theatre between 2004 and 2015. He has not been arrested or charged with any crime.
