Kevin Spacey's legal woes persist even with groping case out

July 18, 2019 - 1:09 pm

BOSTON (AP) — Kevin Spacey's legal woes are not over, despite the collapse of the only criminal case brought against the two-time Oscar winner since he became mired in sexual misconduct allegations.

The former "House of Cards" star is still being investigated in London and Los Angeles over several allegations and faces a federal lawsuit alleging he assaulted a massage therapist in 2016.

Prosecutors in Massachusetts announced Wednesday that they were dropping the indecent assault and battery charge brought last year against Spacey.

It was the only criminal case that has been brought against Spacey since several sexual misconduct allegations emerged in 2017.

British police are investigating six allegations against the actor. Los Angeles prosecutors say they are also reviewing a case involving Spacey.
