American actor, producer, singer and academy award holder Kevin Spacey is charged with indecent assault in a sexual misconduct act in Nantucket, Massachusetts. The assault is alleged to be done in July 2016, as per the reports of The Boston Globe. Spacey is now facing a felony charge for it.
He is accused of conducting sexual misbehaviour with the teenage son of TV news anchor Heather Unruh. According to CBS, he is most likely to appear in Nantucket district court on 7th of January for arraignment.
Anchor Unruh disclosed to the matter to the public in November 2017. Since then, Spacey is facing moral lashes from several big names in the Industry.
After the news on charges against came out, Spacey released an odd video titled “Let me be frank.” (Frank Underwood is a character played by Spacey in critically acclaimed series The House of Cards)
Spacey published the video on all his social media accounts. The peculiar thing is, Spacey last used his accounts in October 2017.
In the video posted by Spacey, he is trying to showcase his side of the story. In the video, Casey said, “Some believed everything and have just been waiting with bated breath to hear me confess it all. They are just dying to have me declare that everything said is true and that I got what I deserved. But you wouldn’t believe the worst without evidence, would you? You wouldn’t rush to judgement without facts, would you?... Did you? If I didn’t pay the price for the things we both know I did do, I am certainly not going to pay the price for the things I didn’t do.”
After the allegations of sexual misconduct, Spacey was removed from The House of Cards by Netflix itself. The sixth season of the show is aired recently on Netflix, in which character of Spacey is shown to dead.
The Unruh case is not the only allegation made on Kevin Spacey. Star Trek: Discovery star Anthony Rapp also alleged that Spacey misconducted him sexually when he was 14. The incident goes back to 1986.
