Kevin Spacey is ready to face his new legal trouble overseas, and is convinced he can clear his name of all sexual assault charges.
Spacey released a statement to “Good Morning America” Tuesday, saying he’s going to “voluntarily appear in the U.K. as soon as can be arranged and defend myself against these charges.”
He says he’s confident he can prove he’s innocent, While he admits he’s disappointed the court moved forward with the charges, he thanks the Crown Prosecution Service for reminding the public he’s allowed a fair trial.
As we reported, Spacey is facing 4 criminal charges for alleged incidents involving 3 different men between 2005 and 2013. On top of sexual assault, he’s also been charged with causing a person to engage in penetrative sexual activity without consent.
All 4 charges have been authorized, and he can only be charged formally upon arrest in Wales or England.
Spacey was also sued in 2020 by “Star Trek: Discovery” actor Anthony Rapp, who claims he sexually assaulted him at the age of 14.
Spacey’s been called out by over 20 accusers who made similar allegations, but he’s never been tried on criminal charges.
