Spacey Pleads Not Guilty

Variety - - Plugged In -

kevin spacey was ar­raigned in a Nan­tucket, Mass., court­room on Jan. 7 on one charge of sex­u­ally as­sault­ing a bus­boy in 2016.

Spacey pushed past a scrum of TV cam­eras on his way into and out of the small court­house on the is­land 30 miles off the Mas­sachusetts coast. The ac­tor did not ut­ter a word dur­ing the brief hear­ing, which was packed with me­dia. A not-guilty plea was en­tered on his be­half.

Spacey is ac­cused of grop­ing an 18-year-old man at Nan­tucket’s Club Car bar in July 2016. He faces a sin­gle charge of in­de­cent as­sault and battery, which car­ries a max­i­mum sen­tence of five years in prison.

A new court date was set for March 4, at which Spacey will not have to ap­pear. Judge Thomas Bar­rett granted a de­fense re­quest that the ac­cuser be re­quired to pre­serve text mes­sages from the six months fol­low­ing the al­leged in­ci­dent. • For the full story, head to Va­ri­
