Kevin Spacey’s lawyers tried to poke holes in claims against him

  • Kevin Spacey

The Boston Globe reported Monday that Spacey was scheduled for arraignment on a charge of indecent assault and battery at Nantucket District Court on January 7.

The alleged victim admitted he lied to Spacey about his age, saying he was a 23-year-old college student attending Wake Forest University, the complaint states. "Did you?" Spacey says in the video, titled "Let Me Be Frank".

"Some believed everything and have just been waiting with bated breath to hear me confess it all", Spacey said in the video. He later adds, "If I didn't pay the price for the things we both know I did do, I'm certainly not going to pay the price for the things I didn't do". "Besides, I know what you want, you want me back". Conclusions can be so deceiving.

Representatives for Spacey did not immediately respond to the Times' request for comment.

During the 36-minute show-cause hearing, Los Angeles-based criminal defense attorney Alan Jackson pointed out that Unruh's son did not report the incident to authorities the night it allegedly happened, or the morning after, and was not interviewed in-person about the incident for more than a year.

After meeting the actor and telling him he was 23 years old - the legal drinking age is 21 in MA - he started drinking first beer and then whiskey with Spacey.

"He did not report the crime at the time, and that was largely because of embarrassment and fear", she said.

Fortunately, Kevin Spacey left briefly to use the bathroom, and when he was out of sight, a concerned woman quickly came to my very shaken son's side and asked if he was okay.

At a news conference in which she made the allegations, Unruh said her "star struck" son falsely told the actor he was old enough to drink when he met him at the bar.

The teenager who was allegedly assaulted by Hollywood actor Kevin Spacey filmed part of the attack on Snapchat, Massachusetts State Police said.

Prosecutors declined to file charges over a 1992 allegation because the statute of limitations had run out. In October 2017, Spacey apologized for any inappropriate conduct with Rapp but has not commented since.

The two-time Oscar victor was among the earliest and biggest names to be ensnared in the #MeToo movement that was sparked by sexual assault and harassment allegations against Hollywood studio boss Harvey Weinstein in October 2017.

Spacey issued an apology to Rapp, but claimed he didn't remember the incident. Spacey also used the statement to disclose he is gay. This is likely more people than who have seen any of the final season of House of Cards - we really don't know, because Netflix doesn't release those numbers - where Underwood is dead and his wife Claire (Robin Wright) becomes president.
