Kevin Spacey court case: Actor appears in Nantucket court over sexual assault charge

The actor was charged last month with one count of felony indecent assault and battery. Spacey has said in court papers that he plans to plead not guilty.

He had tried to avoid appearing in person at the hearing, on the beach resort island of Nantucket off the Massachusetts coast, saying in court papers that his “presence will amplify the negative publicity already generated.”

The Nantucket allegations were first raised in November 2017 by former Boston television journalist Heather Unruh, who told reporters Spacey groped her teenage son on July 7, 2016, at the Club Car restaurant and bar, where he worked as a bus boy.

Unruh’s son told police Spacey had bought him several rounds of beer and whiskey and said at one point, “Let’s get drunk,” according to charging documents.

As they stood next to a piano, Spacey groped Unruh’s son, the bus boy told investigators. The teenager told police that he sent his girlfriend a video of the incident.

March 4 was set as the next court date. Spacey will not be required to attend.
