Kevin Spacey resurfaces with odd video as sexual assault charges loom

Kevin Spacey resurfaces with odd video as sexual assault charges loom

Spacey, 59, is scheduled to be arraigned in Nantucket District Court on January 7, the complaint showed.

The video was referenced in court filings obtained by AFP. Jackson asked State Police Trooper Gerald F. Donovan, a member of the detective unit at the Cape and Islands District Attorney Office who investigated the case and issued the criminal complaint against Spacey.

Assuming the character of US President Frank Underwood from the popular Netflix series, Spacey appears to address the claims made against him, the most recent of which is the alleged sexual assault of an 18-year-old male at a bar in MA in 2016. The young man declined, suspecting the actor was trying to seduce him.

Spacey's attorney also zeroed in on the fact that Unruh's son told investigators that Spacey allegedly groped him for about three minutes, but also told them that he did not move away from Spacey nor did he tell Spacey to stop. Spacey could get up to five years in prison if convicted.

The actor then allegedly invited Little home, which he declined, after which Spacey is accused of molesting him by trying to place his hand down the young man's trousers. It's also unclear if Spacey himself was entirely behind the video or if its release was directly tied to the news about his sexual assault charge. According to the statement from police, the victim said "his girlfriend didn't believe him", so he "Snapchatted the video" of Spacey allegedly touching him. He told his sister about the assault when he came home using the word "rape", she told investigators. In the last twenty-four hours, Kevin's video on YouTube has been viewed 4.5 million times.

According to Unruh, her son didn't speak with police after the alleged incident occurred because he was afraid.

The first public report of alleged abuse by him came from actor Anthony Rapp, who claimed that Spacey sexually abused him when Rapp was 14, in 1986.

In that news conference, Unruh accused Spacey of providing her son with enough alcohol to get him drunk at a crowded restaurant called Club Car.

As news of the criminal charge began circulating, the former "House of Cards" actor tweeted out a video channeling his Frank Underwood character from the acclaimed series - his first tweet since October 2017. The video was is titled "Let Me Be Frank".

"I know what you want". Only you and I both know it's never that simple, not in politics, not in life.

Spacey released a freakish "House of Cards"-inspired video Monday after it was announced he was facing felony charges for the 2016 incident".
