The alleged victim exercised the right not to testify against himself.
The US Public Prosecutor’s Office has closed a criminal case against actor Kevin Spacey in a sexual assault on an 18-year-old man at a Nantucket bar in 2016. The charge was withdrawn due to the alleged victim’s refusal to testify. This was reported by Reuters , CBS and AP .
The man exercised the right under the Fifth Amendment to the US Constitution and refused to testify about text messages on the phone, which allegedly confirmed harassment by Spacey. The victim’s lawyers provided correspondence in court, but the telephone itself was lost, according to the man.
In harassment of his son, Spacey was accused of former Boston television host Heather Junru. She said that the actor was harassing the party man up to a man who at the time was 18 years old. Yura claimed that Spacey had drunk him before that. This is not the first accusation of harassment against the winner of two Oscars.
At the end of October 2017, actor Anthony Rapp accused Kevin Spacey of sexual harassment when he was 14. Spacey apologized, but said he did not remember the circumstances of the incident, and came out. Shortly thereafter, Netflix announced that the sixth season of the “House of Cards” would be the last without Spacey. Directed by Ridley Scott also decided to cut Kevin Spacey from the already finished film “All the Money of the World.” In September 2018, the prosecutor’s office did not initiate a criminal case against the actor because of the expired statute of limitations.
