The actor Kevin Spacey was accused during the wave of "me-to" protests that he sexually assaulted a young actor, today the British court acquitted him of all charges against him.
The Oscar-winning actor and star of the political drama "House of Cards," Kevin Spacey, was accused during the peak of the "Me Too" movement of committing sexual offenses by four men. Spacey was removed from his role in "House of Cards," and serious charges were filed against him in the courts.
Now, the Royal Court in London has determined that Spacey is innocent of all the accusations, and there is no evidence to support the claims made by the men involved. Spacey broke into tears when the judge read the verdict and embraced his lawyers and managers for an extended period.
Spacey claims at length that all relationships he had with the men, if they existed at all, were consensual, and that he never used any force, physical or positional, against them.
The British prosecution announced that they are not expected to appeal the court's decision because, "it is not the role of the Crown Prosecution Service to determine guilt; we respect the court's decision and accept its position."
