A second criminal case has been lodged against actor Kevin Spacey after a number of allegations have been made about Spacey in the last year.
The actor, who was fired from Netflix’s “House of Cards” over the allegations, is still under investigation both in the U.S. as well as in the U.K. for similar alleged crimes after six men came forward accusing Spacey of sexual assault while he was living and working in London.
The first person to come forward with an allegation was “Star Trek: Discovery” star Anthony Rapp, who claimed Spacey made sexual advances toward him in his New York apartment in 1986 when Rapp was 14 years old.
Spacey responded to that accusation with a highly controversial statement but has remained silent over subsequent allegations and investigations.
Earlier this week a Los Angeles County District Attorney spokesperson confirmed to the Los Angeles Blade that the Entertainment Industry Sex Crimes Task Force has received a new sexual assault case against the two-time Oscar-winning actor.
Sheriff’s Department spokesperson Nicole Nishida told the LA Times that “the events were reported to have taken place in October of 1992 in West Hollywood involving a male adult.”
However, the Times reports, the date of the alleged incident may test prosecution under the Oct. 2016 California law eliminating the statute of limitations for rape.
All of these allegations and his sacking from House of Cards has affected Spacey and his projects.
Over the past weekend his latest movie “Billionaire Boys Club” was released and it took in only $126 after it’s Friday debut, opening in only eight theatres across the United States. As of Monday, the film grossed a total of $618.
