After four men testified in the past two weeks that Kevin Spacey preyed on them, prosecutors rested their case against him for sexual assault in a courtroom in London on Wednesday. On Thursday, the defense is expected to start making its case in Southwark Crown Court. The stakes are significant since Spacey may receive a prison sentence if found guilty.
The prosecution read the jurors’ testimony Spacey provided investigators with a denial that he forcibly grabbed the crotches of three men and engaged in non-consensual intercourse with a fourth. Spacey entered a not guilty plea to 12 charges, including one count of compelling a person to engage in penetrative sexual activity without consent and counts of sexual and indecent assault.
An aspiring actor who called Kevin Spacey a “vile sexual predator” who drugged and beat him when he asked for his mentoring admitted on Monday that he had later joked with friends about having sex with the Oscar winner if he couldn’t land a job. The man is the second to last alleged victim to accuse the two-time Oscar winner of sexual attacks that took place in Britain between 2001 and 2013 while he was employed for the Old Vic Theatre in London.
The witness claimed that after the 2008 event, he stopped criticizing Spacey because he wanted to work in the field. The witness claimed that Spacey was one of his heroes and that he wrote to the actor because he “craved inspiration” and wished to meet up for coffee and guidance. He claimed he was shocked when Spacey called him a few weeks later and suggested they for drinks later that evening.
He claimed he was ignorant when he accepted the actor’s offer to visit his flat in the London neighborhood of Waterloo despite hearing that Spacey was gay and preferred young straight men.
An additional man who had spent the evening drinking heavily with the actor claimed that Spacey afterwards offered him an awkward embrace, kissed his neck, and then grabbed his crotch. Spacey said he didn’t remember meeting two of the individuals and denied engaging in any extramarital activity.
