American actor Kevin Spacey, according to the Boston Globe, wants to stay away from a January 7 hearing on alleged sexual assault.
Kevin Spacey soon has to go to court. The load: sexual harassment. But according to a newspaper, the actor doesn't want to appear in front of the judge.
According to the lawyers of the former "House of Cards" star in the Nantucket District Court in the United States, Massachusetts, requested a similar permit. In the charge, the 59-year-old is accused of an 18-year-old in 2016 in a bar in Nantucket and touched immoral.
More than 30 claims
Spacey will be taken to the Nantucket District Magistrate on January 7. According to Massachusetts Court employees, the defendant is obliged to appear in the trial, unless a judge refuses.
Since autumn 2017, charges of sexual abuse and harassment against Spacey have been raised publicly for more than 30 cases. First, actor Anthony Rapp ("Star Trek: Discovery", "Rent") claimed to have been harassed as a 14-year-old in the 1980s. At London's old Vic theater, Spacey is said to have harassed at least 20 men in his time as an artistic director. In England, several police investigations were launched.
The streaming service Netflix had, after the revelations, completed the collaboration with the Oscar winner in the political series "House of Cards". His character Frank Underwood died a serial death and disappeared from production. The actor's career has since been broken. (SDA)
