Kevin Spacey: LA prosecutors drop sexual assault charge

Kevin Spacey: LA prosecutors drop sexual assault charge

The Los Angeles District Attorney's office said on Tuesday it would not prosecute actor Kevin Spacey on a 1992 sexual assault accusation because it fell outside the California statute of limitations.

According to the district attorney's office, the victim was not a minor at the time of the alleged crime.

The action star was accused earlier this year by two women of sexual assault and rape.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office made no comments today on the merits of the accusations.

The allegation against Seagal, meanwhile, relates to an accusation of rape made by an extra on the 1994 film On Deadly Ground, which won't be pursued for the same reasons as the Spacey case.

Put in the hands of the top prosecutors back in August 22, the second sexual assault investigation involving Oscar victor Spacey is still under review by the L.A. D.A, sources confirm to Deadline. That allegation, made by a man, involved an incident in West Hollywood.

According to Variety, there is still one more case that the sheriff's department are reviewing regarding relating to the shamed House of Cards star.

More than 30 men have said they were victims of unwanted sexual advances by Spacey, including 20 people who came forward during an investigation by London's Old Vic theater, where Spacey was artistic director for 12 years.

Anderson "unequivocally disputes the claim" against him, and authorities have not contacted him about it, a representative for the actor said in a statement.

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.

Mr Spacey claimed to have no memory of the events but publicly apologised. Ridley Scott also removed Spacey from his role in All the Money in the World and reshot parts of the film with Christopher Plummer as a replacement.
