Spacey had submitted a statement to Nantucket district court that his presence at a hearing scheduled for 7 January, on accusations that he groped a young man at a local restaurant and bar, would "amplify the negative publicity already generated in connection with this case".

Looks like Kevin Spacey is showing no sign of stopping the provocation of public disapproval.

A MA judge on Monday denied Kevin Spacey's request to skip his arraignment on sexual assault charges.

The 59-year-old Oscar victor, who plans on pleading not guilty, had argued in an affidavit that he should be excused from appearing in court because his presence would "amplify the negative publicity already generated in connection with this case".

Cape and Islands Assistant District Attorney Michael Giardino wrote that Spacey's appearance is required under state rules for criminal case procedure.

Besides those allegations, Mr Spacey also remains under investigation in Los Angeles for an incident that allegedly occurred in 2016, while prosecutors declined to file charges in a 1992 allegation because of the statute of limitations.

Spacey has said he will plead not guilty to felony indecent assault and battery.

Ms Unruh has told reporters her son didn't report the assault at the time because he was embarrassed and scared.

Kevin Spacey broke his radio silence last week with a odd video after going underground for a whole year following the accusations of sexual assault levelled against him.

Star Trek actor Anthony Rapp came forward a year ago with allegations the Netflix star made unwanted sexual advances against him as a teenager.
