The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office confirmed Wednesday it is reviewing a sex crimes case against actor Kevin Spacey.

"A case was presented April 5 by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department", a spokesman for the DA's office said.

Netflix announced past year that it had severed all ties with Spacey and that it would not be involved with any further production of "House of Cards" that included him. The Oscar-winning actor was accused of sexual assault by a number of men during the #MeToo movement, leading to authorities in both the USA and the United Kingdom - where he often worked - opening criminal investigations against him.

Saudi Air Defense Intercepts Missile Over Najran, Shoots Down Two Drones
Malki said Saudi forces also intercepted two missiles in the southern Jizan and Najran provinces, close to the border with Yemen. More than 10,000 people, half of them civilians, have been killed with over two millions displaced in the three-year war.

The DA's office recently declined to prosecute writer-director James Toback on five allegations of sexual assault because those cases fell outside the statute of limitations.

In the U.K., Spacey is under investigation for allegedly assaulting a man in 2005 in the Central London borough of Westminster, and men in the South London borough of Lambeth, in 2005 and 2008. "I want to see Kevin Spacey have the hand of justice come down on him, not just for my son, but for the many others who have yet to speak their truth".

Spacey has been embroiled in controversy since first facing accusations of sexual harassment against an underage actor, Anthony Rapp in October of 2017. In an interview with BuzzFeed News, Rapp that Spacey made a sexual advance on him in 1986, when Rapp was 14 years old and Spacey was 26. Then, she said, Spacey stuck his hand down her son's trousers at the bar.

In response to the allegations, Spacey tweeted that he was "beyond horrified to hear [Rapp's] story", adding that he did not remember the encounter.
