Kevin Spacey used to be one of the most in-demand and sought after actors in all of Hollywood. His excellent roles in American Beauty and House Of Cards won him fan adulation and respect among his peers. That is all in the past now, as he has finally been charged for his crimes.
Kevin Spacey was the subject of #MeToo allegations from several people, and he was removed from a lot of projects. The sexual assault lawsuit was on the verge of dismissal last year as well.
Of course, that has changed now. According to a report by Variety, Kevin Spacey has been charged with four counts of sexual assault and one count of “causing a person to engage in penetrative sexual activity without consent.”
This decision was taken by the U.K.’s prosecution agency Crown Prosecution Service (CPS). They had spent over a year reviewing a file passed to them by the Metropolitan Police.
“The CPS has authorized criminal charges against Kevin Spacey, 62, for four counts of sexual assault against three men,” said Rosemary Ainslie, head of the CPS Special Crime Division.
“He has also been charged with causing a person to engage in penetrative sexual activity without consent. The charges follow a review of the evidence gathered by the Metropolitan Police in its investigation”
“The Crown Prosecution Service reminds all concerned that criminal proceedings against Mr Spacey are active and that he has the right to a fair trial.”
Many people will certainly rejoice at the fact that justice has been served. We will have to wit and see how long he will be behind bars. We’ll keep you updated on this ongoing case.
