It looks like he really thinks he didn’t do anything wrong. There are new reports that Hollywood star Kevin Spacey has pleaded not guilty to four charges of sexual assault and one charge of inducing a person to engage in sexual activity without consent on charges dating back 17 years. The 62-year-old had already indicated that he “vehemently denies” the allegations by three men, who are now between 30 and 40 years old. Here’s what you need to know.
Spacey reportedly appeared in Court One of the Old Bailey under his full name, Kevin Spacey Fowler, for a plea hearing and case management hearing before Justice Wall. The actor is on unconditional bail and attended central London court in person rather than via video link. The alleged acts are said to have occurred between 2005 and 2013 in London and Gloucestershire.
Kevin Spacey pleads not guilty to charges
Spacey, who won Oscars for the films Usual Suspects and American Beauty in the 1990s, said he was ready to defend himself in Britain and was confident any trial would prove his innocence. Once one of Hollywood’s biggest stars, Mr Spacey has largely disappeared from public view since he was charged with sexual misconduct five years ago.
In November 2017, London’s Old Vic Theater said it had received 20 separate allegations of inappropriate behavior from Mr Spacey, out of 20 men who had come into contact with the theater or in connection with it between 1995 and 2013. He was kicked from the TV show House of Cards and removed from the film All the Money in the World after allegations of sexual misconduct came to light.
Spacey’s attorney Patrick Gibbs QC said his client “strongly denies any criminal activity in this case”. Gibbs said Mr Spacey returned to the UK “to prove his innocence” and “to get on with his life”.
So far, Spacey himself has not commented publicly on the case.
