Spacey was in the Westminster Magistrates Court on June 16. His attorney, Patrick Gibbs, announced his client has maintained his innocence, although the court has not yet asked for a plea. The charges stem from three men who say Spacey abused them between 2005 and 2013, when he was working as the Old Vic theater artistic director in London.
The actor has had numerous men come forward alleging inappropriate sexual contact. Spacey didn’t face charges in Los Angeles for the first accusation due to the expiration of the statute of limitations. London began its investigation in 2018, which resulted in the current charges. Spacey also went to court in 2019 in Massachusetts, but the prosecution dropped the case because the accuser was unavailable to testify. The actor also had another case against him dropped when the accuser died.
Spacey remains free on unconditional bail. He will be in the Southwark Crown Court on July 14 to continue the legal process.
