BUT A US federal judge said the actor Kevin Spacey will have to face a civil lawsuit for the alleged sexual assault of fellow actor Anthony Rapp in 1986 when Rapp was only 14 years old.
Manhattan federal judge sided with Rapp
Kevin Spacey tried to negotiate with Anthony Rapp and negotiate with him privately, however, Rapp has the support of Judge Lewis Kaplan.
How it allegedly happened
It looks like the House of Cards actor “ruined” Rapp’s butt and put it on next to him, the teenager wriggled out of his arms and left, so the court documents say.
New York child victim law assists those who have been victims of child abuse to file claims and file a claim beyond the date the event occurred.
Kaplan said they can move forward with the suit
A judge today ruled that a charge of sexual assault, which includes sexual assault in the third degree, can be brought.
Spacey charged with 4 counts of sexual assault in UK
Three separate men in the UK came forward and claimed that Spacey had raped men, allegedly in March 2005, August 2008 and April 2013.
Although I am disappointed with their decision to move forward, I will voluntarily appear in the UK as soon as possible and defend myself against these allegations, which I am sure will prove my innocence.
Spacey says he will go to court to file charges
“I greatly appreciate the statement from the Crown Prosecution Service in which they carefully reminded the media and the public that I am entitled to a fair trial and that I am innocent until proven guilty,” Spacey told Good Morning America.
“While I am disappointed with their decision to move forward, I will voluntarily appear in the UK as soon as possible and defend myself against these allegations, which I am sure will prove my innocence.”
