Kevin Spacey in London court for start of sex offence trial

Kevin Spacey in London court for start of sex offence trial

The trial was adjourned until Friday morning when the prosecution will formally open its case against him.

Spacey, who won Oscars for best actor in American Beauty (1999) and best supporting actor in The Usual Suspects (1995), spent over a decade working in London as artistic director for the British capital’s Old Vic theatre from 2004 to 2015.

British prosecutors first revealed he faced charges in May 2022, saying he was accused of five assaults between March 2005 and April 2013 — four in London and one in Gloucestershire, in the west of England. They involved one man who is now in his 40s and two men now in their 30s.

Last November the Crown Prosecution Service authorised a further seven charges involving sex assaults on one man between 2001 and 2004.

Spacey, once one of Hollywood’s biggest stars, has largely disappeared from public view since being accused of sexual misconduct six years ago.

In the US last October, Spacey defeated a sexual abuse case brought against him in a civil court after jurors in Manhattan found his accuser did not prove his claim that the actor made an unwanted sexual advance on him when he was 14.
