#MeToo: LA Prosecutors Review Assault Accusation Against Kevin Spacey
Los Angeles prosecutors are reviewing a historical assault accusation against Kevin Spacey, officials confirmed on April 11.
Police have filed evidence about an allegation involving an incident with a man in West Hollywood in 1992.
More than 30 men have come forward with allegations of misconduct against Kevin Spacey in recent months.
The Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department said it began investigating the case in December, and presented it to the Los Angeles District Attorney office for review earlier this month.
No details of the allegation have been released.
It is unclear if California’s statute of limitations on prosecuting criminal assault, which is normally ten years, would apply.
