Kevin Spacey : Charges against Kevin Spacey dropped

Charges against Kevin Spacey dropped

Prosecutors in Massachusetts on Wednesday dropped a sexual assault charge against the actor Kevin Spacey, bringing an abrupt close to one of the few criminal cases of the #MeToo era.

Mr. Spacey, 59, had been accused of fondling an 18-year-old man at a Nantucket restaurant three years ago. In recent weeks, there had been signs that the case against Mr. Spacey was in jeopardy. Last month, the accuser’s lawyer said that a smartphone at the center of the case had gone missing, and this month, the accuser dropped a lawsuit against Mr. Spacey only six days after filing it.

Problems for the prosecution came to a head last week when Mr. Spacey’s accuser invoked the Fifth Amendment during a hearing over his missing phone. After the young man refused to continue his testimony, a Nantucket District Court judge speculated about whether the prosecution was still viable.

In a court filing, Michael O’Keefe, a prosecutor with the Cape and Islands District Attorney’s Office, wrote that the office was dropping the prosecution “due to the unavailability of the complaining witness.”
