Kevin Spacey Faces 7 New Assault Charges
(USNewsMag.com) – Actor Kevin Spacey was one of the biggest stars in Hollywood for decades. He was also a big name on the theater scene in the UK. His career crumbled when several men came forward to accuse him of sexually assaulting them. Authorities in the UK charged him with multiple crimes earlier this year. Now, they’ve tacked on more.
On November 16, the head of the Special Crime Division of the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), Rosemary Ainslie, announced seven more charges against the actor, including three counts of sexual assault, three counts of indecent assault, and one count of causing someone to engage in sexual activity without consent.
We have authorised further charges against Kevin Spacey for a number of sexual offences against one man between 2001 and 2004.

The charges come months after CPS charged the actor with one count of making someone engage in penetrative sex without their consent and four counts of sexual assault. Spacey pleaded not guilty to those allegations over the summer.
In October, Spacey won a battle in court against Anthony Rapp. A jury took 90 minutes to decide the actor did not sexually assault his accuser. Rapp filed the case in civil court. Police in the US haven’t filed any charges against Spacey.
The CPS reminded the public that charges against the actor are not a conviction.
