Los Angeles County prosecutors declined Tuesday to file charges against actor Kevin Spacey involving an alleged sexual assault of a male masseur in Malibu about three years ago.
The District Attorney’s Office noted that the alleged victim died during the course of the investigation, and that the allegations cannot be proven without his participation.
In a charge evaluation worksheet, a prosecutor noted that the man alleged that he had been sexually assaulted by Spacey while he was providing masseuse services at a home in Malibu in October 2016.
In another case, prosecutors declined just over a year ago to file charges against Spacey in connection with an alleged sexual assault in 1992, citing the statute of limitations.
The two-time Oscar winner has been under fire following allegations by a number of men that he behaved inappropriately toward them.
Spacey revealed that he was gay after publicly apologizing in October 2017 to “Star Trek: Discovery” actor Anthony Rapp, who accused Spacey of making a sexual advance years ago in his New York apartment, when Spacey was 26 and Rapp was 14.
Following the allegations of sexual misconduct, Spacey was removed from his role in the movie “All The Money in the World” — a role for which his replacement, Christopher Plummer, received an Academy Award nomination for best supporting actor.
