Kevin Spacey’s sexual assault case dropped

Prosecutors dropped sexual assault proceedings against Kevin Spacey on Wednesday after the case against the Hollywood star collapsed over his alleged victim’s refusal to testify. William Little had accused the 59-year-old Oscar winner of groping him in a bar on the upscale resort island of Nantucket in July 2016. But Massachusetts prosecutors filed a formal notice of abandonment of an indecent assault and battery indictment due to “the unavailability of the complaining witness.” It is the latest chapter in Hollywood’s reckoning over sexual assault and harassment, which has already seen television icon Bill Cosby jailed, with movie mogul Harvey Weinstein’s trial set to begin in September. Spacey had insisted on his innocence of the charges, which would have carried a penalty of up to five years in prison.
