Kevin Spacey won't be charged over historic sexual assault allegations

LA prosecutors say second sexual assault case against Kevin Spacey is still under review LA prosecutors say second sexual assault case against Kevin Spacey is still under review

This particular allegation against Spacey involved an adult man who accused Spacey of sexually assaulting him in West Hollywood in October of 1992.

The L.A. district attorney's office said in August that it was reviewing a second sexual assault accusation against Spacey, but declined to give details.

The Los Angeles District Attorney's Office has declined to file sexual assaultcharges against Kevin Spacey, Anthony Anderson and Steven Seagal. Anderson has always strongly denied the claims since it became known earlier this summer that LAPD were looking into the matter. "Anthony unequivocally disputes the claim".

The D.A.'s task force was formed after dozens of Hollywood directors, producers and actors were accused of sexual misconduct in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein sexual abuse scandal.

According to an L.A. County D.A. charge evaluation worksheet, "the reporting party alleged that in 1993, she was the victim of a sexual assault perpetrated by the suspect".

Two years ago, California legislators enacted a law eliminating the previous 10-year-old statute of limitations for rape - the most serious of sex crimes - but that does not include offences before 2016.

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

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.

The two-time Oscar victor has been accused of sexual misconduct by at least 15 men, with alleged incidents spanning his decades in film and on the stage.

Mr Spacey claimed to have no memory of the events but publicly apologised. That makes it too old to prosecute under the relevant penal code at the time.

Actor Kevin Spacey speaks with the media at the premiere of Netflix's television series "House of Cards" at Alice Tully Hall in the Lincoln Center in New York City January 30, 2013.
