Prosecutors are reviewing a decades-old sex crimes case against disgraced actor Kevin Spacey.
The Blast has confirmed that the district attorney in Los Angeles County is currently reviewing the case after it was referred to them by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department last week.
According to authorities, “The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Departments Special Victims Bureau began an investigation into allegations of a sexual assault involving Mr. Kevin Spacey on December 11, 2017.”
The accusations against Spacey stem from an incident involving an adult male which occurred back in October of 1992 in West Hollywood.
An investigation into the allegations was completed by the Sheriff’s Department and presented to the District Attorney’s Office Entertainment Industry Sex Crimes Task Force on April 5, 2018, for review and filing consideration.
In November of 2017, Spacey went into treatment after several people accused the actor of sexual misconduct. Actor Anthony Rapp was the first person to come forward with accusations against Spacey.
After Rapp’s story went public others shared similar stories including a group of people who were employed on the set of “House of Cards.”
As a result of the allegations “House of Cards” and Netflix cut all ties with Spacey.
