Kevin Spacey pleads not guilty to sexual assault allegations

Kevin Spacey charged with indecent assault

Today he had his arraignment in a Nantucket court where he faces charges of sexual assault with a possibility of spending five years in prison if he's found guilty.

Spacey must stay away from the young man who accused him of groping him at a MA bar in 2016 and his family, the judge ordered.

Jackson said in court papers that police reports showed the 18-year-old busboy exchanged numerous text messages and Snapchat videos with his then-girlfriend about his interactions with Spacey at the Club Car bar on the beach resort island off the coast of MA but never mentioned the alleged sexual assault.

This story has been corrected to show that Spacey's lawyers entered a not guilty plea on his behalf instead of Spacey not entering a plea. The next court date is scheduled for March 4, when a pretrial hearing will be held.

Last week, a judge reportedly turned down Spacey's request to skip appearing in person at the court hearing in Nantucket. Jackson said the data was "likely exculpatory". The alleged victim was represented by assistant district attorney Michael Giardino. The alleged incident was said to have occurred when the alleged victim was 18 years old.

The busboy told his family about the alleged assault at the time but did not report the incident to police until more than a year later.

The accuser's attorney, Mitchell Garabedian, issued a statement Monday saying his client hopes to serve as an example to other victims.

NASA spacecraft sends images of icy object past Pluto
Earlier this week, NASA's New Horizons spacecraft flew by what it says is the most distant object ever explored by a spacecraft. On Tuesday, based on early, fuzzy images taken the day before, scientists said Ultima Thule resembled a bowling pin.

The charge against Spacey was filed more than a year after former Boston TV news anchor Heather Unruh publicly accused Spacey of assaulting her son. Spacey had argued his presence would "amplify the negative publicity already generated" by the case.

Sexual assault allegations saw Spacey axed from Netflix's House of Cards.

Spacey became embroiled in controversy in October 2017 when actor Anthony Rapp accused him of trying to seduce him in 1986 when Rapp was 14. The man said he fled when Spacey went to the bathroom.

"Spacey stuck his hand inside my son's trousers and grabbed his genitals", Unruh said.

On the same day he was charged in December, Spacey released a weird YouTube video in which he spoke in character as House of Cards' Frank Underwood to deny the allegations.

Mr Spacey said he had no memory of the event, but publicly apologised before issuing an "absolute" denial of all other allegations.
