Kevin Spacey sexual assault case to be reviewed by LA district attorney

The Hollywood Reporter reports that a sexual assault case concerning actor Kevin Spacey is being officially looked at by the L.A. district attorney, and that "the case was presented to the district attorney's office April 5 by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department". In an interview with BuzzFeed News, Rapp that Spacey made a sexual advance on him in 1986, when Rapp was 14 years old and Spacey was 26.

The Oscar-winning actor lost his job as the star of Netflix' House of Cards not long after the first allegation surfaced against him last October, and was then replaced by Christopher Plummer in All the Money in the World.

A spokesperson for the Los Angeles District Attorney told CNN on Wednesday the office had been given the case earlier this month.

The actor was accused of sexual misconduct by Star Trek actor Anthony Rapp late past year.

No further details were provided. The other two investigations involve alleged sexual assaults in 2005 and 2008.

Prosecutors are reviewing a decades-old sex crimes case against disgraced actor Kevin Spacey.

In response to the allegations, Spacey tweeted that he was "beyond horrified to hear [Rapp's] story", adding that he did not remember the encounter.

Spacey apologised to Rapp and his former publicist said he was seeking unspecified treatment.

Spacey won an Oscar for best actor in 1999 for "American Beauty" and for best-supporting actor in 1996 for "The Usual Suspects", along with a Golden Globe in 2015 for best actor in a TV series for "House of Cards".

Reaction was swift. He was sacked from the Netflix series "House of Cards" and replaced by Christopher Plummer in Ridley Scott's "All the Money in the World".
