american actor Kevin Spacey, who is being prosecuted by the British justice for alleged sexual assaults on three men, will face new charges for the same reason, the prosecutor’s office announced Wednesday.
Those responsible for the Crown Prosecutor’s Office (CPS) have “authorized additional criminal charges against Kevin Spacey, 63, for several sexual assaults on a man between 2001 and 2004,” the service in charge of the most sensitive cases reported in a statement. in the United Kingdom.
The actor is also accused of having forced that person to “participate in a non-consensual sexual relationship,” adds the CPS.
Spacey, winner of two Oscars for “American Beauty” (1999) and “The Usual Suspects” (1995), is already being prosecuted by the British courts for four alleged assaults on three men between March 2005 and April 2013, when he was director of the famous Old Vic theater in London.
During a preliminary hearing in July, he pleaded not guilty to all charges. The process should be held in June 2023.
Spacey had been the subject of several complaints in the United States for sexual harassment and assault in 2017. Last October, the New York court acquitted him in a civil proceeding for sexually touching actor Anthony Rapp 36 years ago during an evening in Manhattan.
Spacey was initially accused in the state of Massachusetts of having put his hands on the sex of an 18-year-old boy in a bar, after getting him drunk, in July 2016. These charges were dropped in 2019.
The wave of accusations that destroyed his successful career corresponded to the rise of the #MeToo movement, which was born in 2017 from the case of the all-powerful American film producer Harvey Weinstein.
As a result, Spacey was fired from the Netflix series “House of Cards,” where he played the title character, and was left out of a Ridley Scott film, “All the Money in the World,” in which he was replaced by the Canadian actor. Christopher Plummer.
