ONE Nantucket's judge ordered Kevin Spacey to appear in court next week for his sexual assault arraignment, denying the Oscar-winning two-year-old's apology from what he described as a media circus.
Spacey said in court documents filed on Monday, which will not be guilty of indecent assault.
The 59-year-old actor is accused of groping an 18-year-old employee at Club Car, a restaurant and bar on Nantucket in July 2016.
In the court documents, obtained by The Telegraph, he asked the judge that he was exempted from January 7, claiming that his presence would "reinforce the negative publicity already generated in the case."
His lawyer added that his presence would increase "harmful media interest" in the case and pollute the jury's pool.
The judge quickly refused Spacey's request and ordered that he take part in the trial.
