Kevin Spacey Sexual Assault Case Under Review by LA District Attorney

A sexual assault accusation against Oscar-winning actor Kevin Spacey is under review by the Los Angeles District Attorney's Office.

Sheriff's investigators presented the allegations on April 5 to the district attorney's task force on sex crimes in the entertainment industry, a sheriff's statement said.

Kevin Spacey at the second-season premiere of "House of Cards". To date, dozens of men have come forward with allegations that Spacey groped or assaulted them sexually - many when they were boys. Cavazos said that he fended Spacey off when the "House of Cards" actor made two unwanted sexual advances toward him, and that many people who have worked with Spacey have a similar story.

The county sheriff's department presented results of its investigation of the matter to the district attorney last week, five months after Spacey was sacked from the Netflix television drama House of Cards over sexual misconduct accusations. According to the sheriff's department, detectives began investigating the case on December 11, and it involved an alleged sexual assault of a man in West Hollywood in October 1992.

Spacey is also under scrutiny for allegedly grabbing an 18-year-old man's genitals in a Nantucket, Massachusetts, bar in 2016. Spacey was artistic director of the Old Vic theater in London from 2004 to 2015. Heather Unruh, mother to the victim and a former Boston news anchor, said Spacey bought her son several drinks and "stuck his hand inside my son's trousers and grabbed his genitals".

The news comes six months after Spacey was accused of sexual misconduct of actor Anthony Rapp when he was 14.

"I want to see Kevin Spacey go to jail", Unruh told the New York Daily News. Rapp said it happened in 1986, when he was at Spacey's home for a party, and Spacey put him on his bed and climbed on top of him.
