Kevin Spacey arrives in court in London amid sexual assault allegations

Kevin Spacey has arrived at a UK court today after he was charged with four counts of sexual assault against three men.

The 62 year old actor has been charged with two counts of sexual assault on a man in London in March 2005. He has also been charged one count of sexual assault and on count of causing a person to engage in penetrative sexual activity without consent on a man in August 2008 in London.

He's made his way into London's Westminster magistrates' court to face the charges today, 16 June 2022.

Rosemary Ainslie, Head of the CPS Special Crime Division, said at the time of his charges last month: “The CPS has authorised criminal charges against Kevin Spacey, 62, for four counts of sexual assault against three men.

"He has also been charged with causing a person to engage in penetrative sexual activity without consent.

"The charges follow a review of the evidence gathered by the Metropolitan Police in its investigation.

“The Crown Prosecution Service reminds all concerned that criminal proceedings against Mr Spacey are active and that he has the right to a fair trial.”

In a statement released to Good Morning America, the actor previously said: “I very much appreciate the Crown Prosecution Service’s statement in which they carefully reminded the media and the public that I am entitled to a fair trial, and innocent until proven otherwise."

Kevin continued: "While I am disappointed with their decision to move forward, I will voluntarily appear in the UK as soon as can be arranged and defend myself against these charges, which I am confident will prove my innocence.”

Claims against the House of Cards actor first surfaced in 2017, with some of them dating back to 1996. He has previously denied all allegations against him.

The actor has kept a low profile in recent years, with Kevin's House of Cards character Frank Underwood being killed off ahead of the sixth season.

Lead actress Robin Wright, who plays Claire Underwood, took centre stage instead.

Kevin's acting career spans across three decades, with him making his acting debut in 1984 in Mike Nichols' Heartburn starring Meryl Streep and Jack Nicholson.

He's since starred in other hit movies like American Beauty, The Unusual Suspects, Baby Driver, Pay It Forward, and A Bug's Life.
