Kevin Spacey will face 7 more sexual assault charges in the UK


LONDON — Actor Kevin Spacey will face seven further sexual assault charges in the UK, the Crown Prosecution Service has announced.

The charges to be filed stem from alleged incidents in 2001 and 2004, with one victim, prosecutors said. Spacey will face three counts of indecent assault, three counts of sexual assault and one count of inducing a person to engage in sexual activity without consent, prosecutors said.

“The Crown reminds all concerned that the criminal proceedings against Mr Spacey are active and that he is entitled to a fair trial,” Rosemary Ainslie, head of the CPS’s special crime division, said on Wednesday.

Spacey, 63, has faced sexual assault allegations and charges in the UK and US.

He was found not liable in October in a civil sexual assault lawsuit filed by fellow actor Anthony Rapp in New York.

Spacey appeared in a London court in July to plead not guilty after the Metropolitan Police formally charged him with multiple sexual assault charges.
