Kevin Spacey expected in court Monday to face sex assault charges

Kevin Spacey faces charges from 2016

The 59-year-old Oscar-winning actor had argued he should be excused from attending his January 7 arraignment at the Nantucket District Court because his presence would "amplify the negative publicity already generated in connection with this case".

The disgraced actor, who is set to be arraigned in a MA court on Monday on charges of sexual assault against an 18-year-old restaurant employee, is ready for his close-up again, 14 months after his world fell apart following a series of misconduct allegations. If convicted, Spacey faces as many as five years in prison.

Their questioning hinted at their strategy, focusing on the amount of time it took the accuser to go to police and his behavior on and off camera.

The Metropolitan Police is investigating six allegations of assault in London and Gloucester from 1996 to 2013, but will not publicly confirm that Spacey is the suspect or whether they have made any attempt to interview him. "You want me back".

Spacey, who filed the motion to waive his appearance under his legal name Kevin S. Fowler, said he intends to plead not guilty.

The first public report of alleged abuse by him came from actor Anthony Rapp, who claimed that Spacey sexually abused him when Rapp was 14, in 1986.

"Coming out stories should not be used to deflect from allegations of sexual assault", Sarah Kate Ellis, president and chief executive officer of GLAAD tweeted at the time.

Mr Spacey has not appeared on the screen or on stage since Mr Rapp came forward. One former production assistant told CNN that Spacey sexually assaulted him during one of the show's early seasons.

After the charge was announced last month, Spacey released a video in the voice of Frank Underwood, his character on Netflix's "House of Cards", in which he said, "I'm certainly not going to pay the price for the thing I didn't do". The character was killed off in the show after Spacey was sacked.

"Of course, some believed everything and have been just waiting with baited breath to hear me confess it all". You wouldn't rush to judgment without facts, would you? And besides, I know what you want. "Did you?" he said.
