LA prosecutors decline Kevin Spacey sexual assault case

Kevin Spacey will no longer face charges over some accusations of sexual assault

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

Both men are still facing investigation by the task force for separate alleged cases of sexual assault that are now being reviewed to see if they'll stand up in court.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office made no comments today on the merits of the accusations.

Prosecutors have also decided not to file charges against actors Steven Seagal and Anthony Anderson over alleged sex crimes.

Anderson "unequivocally disputes the claim" against him, and authorities have not contacted him about it, a representative for the actor said in a statement.

The cases were reviewed by a task force established to evaluate sex abuse allegations in the entertainment industry in the wake of dozens of women accusing disgraced film mogul Harvey Weinstein and others of abuse.

The Los Angeles District Attorney's office said in August that it was reviewing a second sexual assault accusation against Spacey, but declined to give details.

The Old Vic theatre said it has received 20 allegations of inappropriate behaviour against Spacey.

Actor Anthony Rapp, 46, told BuzzFeed last October that when he was a teenager, Spacey, then in his 20s, made a sexual advance toward him.

But on Tuesday, the DA dropped the case against the 48-year-old 'because the woman refused to cooperate and there was not enough evidence to go forward, ' the website claimed.

Spacey and Seagal are facing potential charges in other cases now under investigation.

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

Anderson, star of ABC's Black-ish, was accused of sexual assault earlier in 2018, according to Variety. His film Billionaire Boys Club flopped, he was sacked from Netflix drama House Of Cards and erased from Sir Ridley Scott's All The Money In The World.
