Los Angeles District prosecutors are considering charging Kevin Spacey over a sexual assault claim. This involved the case happened in October 1992 in West Hollywood where the 58-year-old actor was accused of attacking a man. According to the L.A. District Attorney’s industry sex crimes task force’s spokeswoman, its special victim unit already began investigating the allegations against the former House of Cards star back in December 2017.
On the other hand, district attorney spokesman Greg Risling confirmed there is an investigation ongoing involving Kevin Spacey’s sexual assault. Also, the case has been handed to the L.A. District prosecutors on April 5 for review, London Evening Standard reported.
However, according to BBC, it remains to be seen if California’s statute of limitations on charging criminal sexual assault would be applied to Kevin Spacey. Crimes of sexual assault are usually prosecuted for 10 years. Scotland Yard is also investigating sexual assault allegations against the American Beauty actor by three men in London that happened from 2005 to 2008.

Although Kevin Spacey didn’t directly admit he sexually harassed Anthony Rapp, he issued a public apology and sincerely apologized to the Star Trek: Discovery star. He also came out as a gay man. From here, he had himself admitted to a treatment center in November, per E! News.
Since then, several more guys came out and accused Kevin Spacey of sexual misconduct. In fact, even House of Cards production staff’s members revealed they were sexually harassed by the actor. There was even a claim of sexual assault, CNN cited.
Also, former television news anchor, Heather Unruh, came forward and accused Kevin Spacey of sexually assaulting her son in 2016. The victim was 18-years-old at the time.
