Kevin Spacey due in court on charge of groping young man

Kevin Spacey due in court on charge of groping young man”

Actor Kevin Spacey is scheduled to be arraigned in Nantucket District Court after being charged last month with one count of felony indecent assault and battery.

The disgraced actor, who is set to be arraigned in a MA court on Monday on charges of sexual assault against an 18-year-old restaurant employee, is ready for his close-up again, 14 months after his world fell apart following a series of misconduct allegations.

Prosecutors requested Spacey have no contact, direct or indirect, with his accuser, which the judge granted.

As they stood next to a piano, Spacey groped Unruh's son, the bus boy told investigators.

Jackson, has sought to poke holes in the case, noting that the teenager didn't immediately report the allegations. If convicted, Spacey faces as many as five years in prison.

Garabedian is not a part of the criminal case against Spacey.

Authorities say Spacey got an 18-year-old bus boy drunk, and fondled the teen under his trousers without consent, while visiting The Club Car in Nantucket, Massachusetts in July 2016.

Later, as the two stood near the piano player in the bar, Spacey reached over and began to rub the busboy's thigh, the complaint states.

An attorney for Spacey, Juliane Balliro, had argued that Spacey's presence at his arraignment would only "heighten prejudicial media interest in the case" and increase the risk of contaminating the jury pool.

The 18-year-old's girlfriend said she did get a Snapchat video, but could only say that it showed a hand touching the front of her boyfriend's trousers.

Television anchor Heather Unruh told reporters in November 2017 that Spacey got her son drunk and then grabbed his genitals during the incident.

Spacey then allegedly invited him back to his place, along with some other friends. The victim said he videotaped Spacey groping him.

However on Christmas Eve a video was released on his official Twitter account which appeared to feature the actor reprising his role as Frank Underwood from House of Cards, insisting: "I'm certainly not going to pay the price for the thing I didn't do". "You're smarter than that", Spacey said in the video.
