Sexual Assault Charges Dropped Against Kevin Spacey Following a July 14 meeting between
the accuser, his parents and prosecutors,
the charges against Kevin Spacey have
been dropped by prosecutors.
In a statement, District Attorney Michael O’Keefe said
the accuser chose to invoke the Fifth Amendment on
July 8, which ultimately halted the case’s progression.
via statement Spacey was first accused of sexual assault in 2017
by a 18-year-old boy who alleged that the actor groped
him in 2016 while at a bar in Nantucket, Massachusetts.
In January 2019, Spacey was formally
charged with indecent assault and
battery stemming from the accusation.
The alleged victim reportedly took videos of the assault,
but during the pre-trial hearings it was discovered
that key information on the phone had been deleted.
It was also revealed that the accuser’s
phone had apparently been lost in the
process of forensic examination.
The accuser then voluntarily chose to
dismiss the case with prejudice, meaning
he cannot refile the case at a later date.
