Kevin Spacey assault accusations under review by LA prosecutors

Kevin Spacey assault accusations under review by LA prosecutors

Prosecutors are reviewing a decades-old sex crimes case against disgraced actor Kevin Spacey.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office is reviewing a case presented to the Sherrif's department on April 5, Variety has confirmed.

"The events were reported to have taken place in October of 1992 in West Hollywood involving a male adult", she said.

The Oscar-winning actor was accused of sexual assault by a number of men during the #MeToo movement, leading to authorities in both the USA and the United Kingdom - where he often worked - opening criminal investigations against him.

The case is the first police investigation naming Spacey as a suspect in Los Angeles County.

Spacey apologized to his first public accuser, actor Anthony Rapp, and his representatives have said he was seeking unspecified treatment.

A spokeswoman for the actor, Laura Johnson, declined to comment.

Rapp, now 46, shared his account of the alleged 1986 incident with a then-26-year-old Spacey in an interview with Buzzfeed back in October.

Days later, members of the "House of Cards" production staff detailed sexual harassment and an alleged instance of sexual assault to CNN.

Spacey, now 58, said he did not remember the encounter but apologised for any "inappropriate drunken behaviour".

The US actor was sacked by Netflix's House Of Cards and Sir Ridley Scott scrubbed Spacey from completed film All The Money In The World in re-shoots costing millions.

London's Old Vic theater, where Spacey served as artistic director for 12 years, said last year that it received 20 accusations of inappropriate conduct by Spacey between 1995 and 2013.
