Kevin Spacey, Steven Seagal Won't Be Charged for 2 Alleged Sexual Assaults

  • LA prosecutors say second sexual assault case against Kevin Spacey is still under review

As well as facing potential life behind bars in a criminal case in New York, Weinstein faces almost a dozen lawsuits filed by some of the 80 women who have accused him of sexual assault and harassment.

The Spacey case, involving an adult male, was presented to Los Angeles prosecutors in April and had been under review.

The L.A. district attorney's office said in August that it was reviewing a second sexual assault accusation against Spacey, but declined to give details.

The case remains under review.

The District Attorney's office also said it would not charge actor Steven Seagal and television comedy star Anthony Anderson over two other sexual assault accusations.

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".

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

Sony launches Xperia XZ3 at IFA with a 6.0-inch OLED display
The screen now has curved edges a bit like the Galaxy S9 and a feature similar to HTC's Edge Sense. Sony Xperia smartphones stand out for their camera capabilities, and the Xperia XZ3 is no less.

This isn't the first time Anthony has had such cases pinned against him.

A number of allegations of sexual misconduct have been made against the Oscar-winning actor since last November, when he was accused by actor Anthony Rapp of making a sexual advance in 1986.

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

But on Tuesday, the DA dropped the case against the 48-year-old 'because the woman refused to cooperate and there was not enough evidence to go forward, ' the website claimed.

After Rapp made his allegation, Spacey issued a statement saying he did not remember the encounter but apologised for "deeply inappropriate drunken behaviour".

As a result, Spacey was sacked from his lead role on House of Cards, and his most recent film, Billionaire Boys Club, bombed at the box office, with a $618 opening weekend - Spacey's career low.
