Kevin Spacey Fowler famed as Kevin Spacey is an American actor, producer as well as a singer who got huge recognition after winning the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for the neo-noir crime thriller The Usual Suspects in 1995. In the year 1999, he again clinched the Academy Award for Best Actor for the midlife crisis-themed drama American Beauty as well as the Golden Globe Award in 2015 for House of Cards. His other notable works include House of Cards, Casino Jack, Beyond the Sea, American Beauty, and few more. He has also launched a single That Old Black Magic in 1997 and also released an album Beyond the Sea: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack in the year 2004. In December 2018, he was charged with indecent assault and battery in relation to an accusation by anchorwoman Heather Unruh that he sexually assaulted her 18-year-old son.

Judge says Kevin Spacey sex assault case could be dismissed

A judge in Massachusetts said the case against actor Kevin Spacey, accused of groping a young man in a bar three years ago, may be dismissed because the accuser invoked the Fifth Amendment after testifying he did not delete anything from a cell phone central to the case. He aces criminal charges of indecent assault and battery in connection to the alleged July 2016 incident. The former "House of Cards" star has pleaded not guilty and did not attend the Monday hearing. If convicted, he could face up to five years in prison. The pretrial hearing in Massachusetts focused on the cell phone the accuser used to text his girlfriend and send a video during the alleged assault. The prosecution said it obtained data from the phone, which it shared with the defense, and returned the phone to the man's family. But the phone is now missing. Judge Barrett ruled in June the defense was entitled to inspect the phone. But the accuser and his family have said they don't have it and don't know where it is. The accuser testified that he did not delete any messages from his now-missing iPhone 5S, which he used to text his girlfriend and a group of seven friends the night of the incident in question. Jackson, the defense lawyer, went through some of the texts from the screen shots that were turned over to police to show that they do not entirely match the data recovered from the forensic image, including a text from his girlfriend instructing him to "walk away." Spacey's accuser, who was an 18-year-old busboy at a Nantucket bar at the time of the alleged assault, filed the civil complaint on June 26. In it, the accuser said Spacey bought him "multiple alcoholic beverages" before he forcibly touched and fondled his genitals; the same allegations he made in the criminal case. The civil lawsuit accused Spacey of explicit sexual behavior and infliction of mental distress. It demanded judgment in an amount to be determined by a jury, including costs, interests and attorney fees.
