Kevin Spacey to appear in UK court charged with four counts of sexual assault

The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) approved charges against him last month, but Spacey could only be charged after he traveled to the UK.

In a statement released to Good Morning America, the US breakfast television show, following the CPS announcement, the actor said: “While I am disappointed in their decision to go ahead, I will voluntarily appear in the UK as soon as this can be arranged and defend me against these allegations which I am confident will prove my innocence.”

The actor faces two counts of sexually assaulting a man, now in his 40s, in London in March 2005; sexual assault of a man, now in his 30s, in London in August 2008, leading him to engage in penetrative sexual activity without consent; and sexually assaulting a man, now in his 30s, in April 2013 in Gloucestershire.

Spacey was Artistic Director of London’s Old Vic Theater from 2004 until his retirement in 2015.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said: “Kevin Spacey Fowler, 62, was formally charged today [Monday, June 13] with four counts of sexual assault against three men. He was also accused of tricking a person into engaging in penetrative sexual activity without consent.

“He is due to appear in Westminster Magistrates Court at 10am on Thursday.”
