Kevin Spacey appears in court via video link, charged with seven sex crimes | The Art News

Kevin Spacey appeared in court to remotely accuse a new accuser of sexual assault.

The 63-year-old actor, who appeared at Westminster Magistrates’ Court via video link from the Middle East, only confirmed his name, date of birth and London address at the brief hearing.

He made no pleas after being accused of sexually assaulting an alleged male victim in an alleged incident between 2001 and 2004.

The latest seven charges against the Hollywood star include three counts of indecent assault, three counts of sexual assault and one count of causing sexual activity without consent.

They brought the total number of charges facing Spacey to 12.

He was granted unconditional bail until his next court appearance at Southwark Crown Court on January 13, when he is expected to appear in person.
