Sex assault case against Kevin Spacey dropped by US prosecutors

The accuser said Spacey's alleged touching went on for about three minutes and that he tried to move away, to no avail, according to the reports.

"A defendant can not be convicted on the uncorroborated testimony of an immunized witness", the office wrote.

Prosecutors said they could further pursue the case and grant the accuser immunity but then they would need more than his uncorroborated testimony.

Lawyers for Spacey and the accuser did not immediately respond to Reuters News Agency's requests for comment.

Mitchell Garabedian, a lawyer for the accuser, said in email that the man and his family "have shown an enormous amount of courage under hard circumstances".

He declined to comment further. The suit was dismissed "with prejudice," meaning it can not be refiled.

Spacey was charged with indecent assault and battery a year ago in the only criminal case that has been brought against the actor since his career collapsed amid a slew of sexual misconduct allegations.

Spacey's attorney, Alan Jackson, had sought access to a phone which contained texts from the evening of the alleged incident. They argued the man had deleted text chains with the actor, that would have shown he was innocent. He also wrote at one point, "I got the autographs and a hell of a. story".

The July 8 hearing had to be called because the accuser said he couldn't find a cellphone wanted by the defense.

Unruh testified in court last week there was no settlement in the civil case.

No reason was provided either by Garabedian or in the court filing.

The Associated Press does not typically name people who say they are the victims of sexual assault unless they identify themselves publicly.

Kevin Spacey's sexual assault criminal case has been dropped, PEOPLE confirms.

Unruh's son denied knowledge of any deletions, at which point Jackson warned him that manipulating evidence in a police investigation is a felony in MA.

On Christmas Eve 2018, shortly after the Globe published a story online about the opening of the criminal case against Spacey, he surfaced in a freaky YouTube video in which he appeared to assume the character he'd portrayed in the Netflix series "House of Cards".

Spacey was cut from the show's final season amid the wave of accusations.

It was the first criminal charge against Spacey after he was accused of sexual misconduct by over a dozen men in 2017, as part of the #MeToo movement's unearthing of sexual misconduct allegations against a series of actors, politicians and media personalities.
