Sexual Assault Case Against Kevin Spacey Dropped After Man Dies

Los Angeles prosecutors have dropped a sexual assault case against actor Kevin Spacey brought by a masseur because the man has died since filing the complaint.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney's office announced the decision on Tuesday.

The case stemmed from a masseur's allegations that Spacey inappropriately touched him during a massage session at a home in Malibu, California, in October 2016.

The decision states that the allegations against Spacey could not be proven without the masseur's participation.

The man also sued Spacey under the alias John Doe in a case that remains pending in federal court.

Massachusetts prosecutors in July dropped a criminal case against Spacey filed after accusations that he groped an 18-year-old man at a bar on the resort island of Nantucket in 2016.

Kevin Spacey made his first public appearance in two years just weeks after prosecutors dropped a criminal case against the actor in Massachusetts.

In that case, Spacey's accuser invoked his Fifth Amendment right not to testify about text messages from the night of the alleged groping that the defence claimed were deleted.

Police in London are also investigating allegations of sexual misconduct by Spacey but there has been no recent public update on that inquiry.
