Actor Kevin Spacey will reportedly be charged with sexual assault as the result of a 2016 incident with the teenage son of a Boston-area reporter in Nantucket, Massachusetts.
Cape and Islands District Attorney Michael O’Keefe said that Spacey was due to be arraigned on January 7th on a charge of indecent assault and battery. Spacey is accused of accusing the then 18-year-old son of WCVB-TV news anchor Heather Unruh. Unruh claims that Spacey purchased alcohol for him after he lied about his age.
However, after some drinking, Spacey allegedly stuck his hand into the man’s pants, grabbing his genitalia. Unruh’s son managed to shift his weight, partially moving away, but was unable to fully escape. At some point later in the night, Spacey invited him to an after-party for more drinks, but the 18-year-old excused himself to the bathroom, where he then managed to leave the restaurant and go to his grandmother for help.
