Kevin Spacey charged with indecent assault

Lawyers for Kevin Spacey entered a not guilty plea on his behalf in MA court on Monday on charges he groped an 18-year-old busboy in 2016.

Kevin Spacey was arraigned in Nantucket District Court on Monday after being accused of sexually assaulting the son of a former TV news anchor at a bar in Nantucket, Mass. back in 2016. Spacey will not have to appear at his next hearing on March 4, but he must be available by phone, Barrett said. Spacey Attorney Alan Jackson said there is data that is "likely exculpatory" for Spacey.

As per reports, he had requested to not to be physically present at Monday's arraignment.

The actor faces five years in prison if charged over the alleged assault of William Little, who was 18 at the time of the incident in July 2016 at a Nantucket restaurant.

His appearance in a crowded courthouse surrounded by television trucks came at what is normally a quiet time of year on the island.

The 59-year-old actor is one of dozens of men in the entertainment industry, business and politics who have been accused of sexual misconduct since accusations against movie producer Harvey Weinstein in 2017 sparked the #MeToo movement.

The hosts got into second gear after 20 minutes, with United growing in the game and putting a string of passes together. We have an opponent [Liverpool] that has done better than us, without us having him, and that can happen".

In October 2017, actor Anthony Rapp told BuzzFeed News that Spacey tried to sexually proposition him when he was 14 and Spacey was 26. Instead of being asked to enter a plea, the judge told him that if another charge is filed against him while this case is open, he could be held for 90 days without bail.

Spacey apologised for inappropriate conduct with Rapp.

Spacey was ordered to meet with the probation department before leaving the premises to sign the conditions of his no contact order with the alleged victim.

The attorneys said prosecutors have only provided a copy of a brief Snapchat video the victim said he took of the alleged incident, but that, according to Spacey's attorneys, does not show any actual groping.

Mr Garabedian said, before the hearing, that the young man was coming forward to encourage other victims to speak out.

The victim's "unsubstantiated, after-the-fact claims of sexual assault are patently false" and other details about their interaction that night "at best. describes two people engaged in mutual and consensual flirtation, nothing more, " the attorneys wrote. The man said Spacey bought him several drinks and tried to convince him to come home with him before unzipping the man's trousers and groping him for about three minutes.
