Kevin Spacey’s lawyer says alleged groping victim didn’t stop the actor

Kevin Spacey Charged With ‘Indecent Assault And Battery’ For Alleged 2016 Incident With 18-Year-Old

Cape and Islands District Attorney Michael O'Keefe announced Monday that Spacey has been charged with indecent assault and battery after the alleged groping.

The 10 top local news stories from metro Boston and around New England delivered daily.

Neither Spacey nor his lawyers have addressed the allegation publicly, but Spacey did release a video Monday in the voice of Frank Underwood, his character on Netflix's House of Cards, in which he said, "I'm certainly not going to pay the price for the thing I didn't do".

After the teen left the bar, Spacey texted him, "I think we lost each other". The alleged assault on a teenage male victim took place at a Nantucket bar in July 2016, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

"[Unruh's son] said the whole thing was embarrassing and has not had a "profound emotional effect" on him", Trooper Gerald F. Donovan wrote in the report. Although she did add that her son was shaken up by the incident and told family members about it.

The actor allegedly stuck his hands into her son's trousers and grabbed his genitals, she said, adding it was "completely unexpected" and her son tried unsuccessfully to shift his body away from Spacey.

The alleged victim sent his girlfriend a Snapchat video during the encounter, but Spacey's attorneys argued that it simply showed someone's hand touching another person's shirt, "but no groping".

Veteran draws millions in donations for Trump's border wall
He said he's mirroring this effort off of the $7.5 million donation that was forked over to fix the Washington Monument. The triple amputee and military veteran launched the campaign on December 16, setting an initial goal of $200 million.

At a news conference in which she made the allegations, Unruh said her "star struck" son falsely told the actor he was old enough to drink when he met him at the bar. Attorney Alan Jackson said of this: "That's an incredibly long time to have a odd man's hands in your trousers, correct?"

Earlier this year, CBS News reported that British police were investigating six claims of sexual assault or assault by Spacey.

"I would agree with that".

The alleged victim told police that he couldn't move away easily because the bar was packed. According to the report, the alleged victim told investigators that "Spacey kept reaching down his trousers".

In his interview with police, investigators showed the busboy that video and confirmed his and Spacey's clothing that night. Spacey has never directly responded to the allegations and has remained out of the public eye for more than a year.

Assuming the character of US President Frank Underwood from the popular Netflix series, Spacey appears to address the claims made against him, the most recent of which is the alleged sexual assault of an 18-year-old male at a bar in MA in 2016.
