LA Prosecutors Decline Criminal Charges Against Kevin Spacey, Steven Seagal, Anthony Anderson

Robin Wright suggests'second chance for Kevin Spacey

Los Angeles prosecutors have cited the statute of limitations while saying they won't file sexual assault cases against actors Kevin Spacey and Steven Seagal involving incidents in the early 1990s.

The actor, 59, will not be charged following by the Los Angeles County District Attorney due to the statute of limitations.

Spacey was alleged by a man to have sexually assaulted him in 1992, while Seagal has been accused of sexually assaulting a woman in 1993.

But "the reporting party declined to be interviewed by the investigating officer", the charge evaluation sheet said, a necessity in deciding whether to prosecute.

The 59-year-old is also being investigated in the United Kingdom for six sexual assault claims over 22 years.

The D.A.'s task force was formed after dozens of Hollywood directors, producers and actors were accused of sexual misconduct in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein sexual abuse scandal.

Clockwise from left to right: Anthony Anderson, Steven Seagal and Kevin Spacey.

Beverly Hills police previous year investigated Seagal after a woman reported he had raped her on January 1, 1993. "So there was a "lack of sufficient evidence" to proceed with a case", the L.A. County District Attorney's Office said. That makes it too old to prosecute under the relevant penal code at the time.

In October, actor Anthony Rapp said that in 1986, when Rapp was 14, Spacey made sexual advances toward him in a hotel room. The accusation was made less than two weeks after Anderson, 48, received his fourth Emmy nomination for outstanding lead actor in a comedy series for "Black-ish". He has largely retreated from public view since the allegations became public, and he was sacked from the hit Netflix series "House of Cards".

Addressing the accusations, which were made last October, the Spacey released a statement explaining that he did not remember the alleged encounter but "if I did behave then as he describes, I owe him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behaviour".
