LA prosecutors won't file sexual assault charges against Spacey, Seagal

The Los Angeles District Attorney's office said on Tuesday it would not prosecute actor Kevin Spacey on a 1992 sexual assault accusation because it fell outside the California statute of limitations.

A man alleged the former House Of Cards actor assaulted him in West Hollywood in October 1992.

Prosecutors are however reviewing another case involving Spacey that includes allegations he attacked a man in Malibu in October 2016.

But in the allegations against Anderson, prosecutors said the alleged victim "declined to be interviewed".

Spacey, 59, is being investigated in the United Kingdom for six sexual assault claims over 22 years.

The cases were reviewed by a task force established to evaluate sex abuse allegations in the entertainment industry in the wake of dozens of women accusing disgraced film mogul Harvey Weinstein and others of abuse.

The Seagal allegation, which was investigated by the Beverly Hills Police, involves an 18-year-old actress who accused Seagal of raping her in 1993 when she was an extra on Seagal's 1994 film "On Deadly Ground".

Seagal's attorney Anthony Falangetti denied the accusations on behalf of his client in a statement to ABC News.

Prosecutors also declined to prosecute alleged sex crimes against the actors Steven Seagal and Anthony Anderson.

According to the district attorney's office, the victim was not a minor at the time of the alleged crime.

Police in London are investigating six criminal cases against him.

Anderson, star of ABC's Black-ish, was accused of sexual assault earlier in 2018, according to Variety.

Spacey became embroiled in controversy in 2017 when actor Anthony Rapp accused him of trying to seduce him in 1986 when Rapp was 14.

United Kingdom police are also looking into several accusations against the actor.

He was also sacked from Netflix's House Of Cards and edited out of Sir Ridley Scott's All The Money In The World.
