Actor Kevin Spacey is the focus of a new investigation into a sexual assault case in Los Angeles, according to media reports. The AP reports that L.A. County prosecutors are investigating an alleged 2016 sexual assault by Spacey for possible criminal charges.
“Spokesman Greg Risling said Wednesday that a district attorney’s task force on sexual misconduct had received the case,” the AP reports. “Sheriff’s spokeswoman Nicole Nishida said detectives in the department’s Malibu-area station started the investigation in May. Nishida says the allegations stem from an October 2016 incident.”
Spacey is already under investigation in L.A. County in connection with an alleged 1992 incident, the AP reports, noting that the older case “could prove impossible to prosecute because of statutes of limitations.”
Spacey is also reportedly under investigation in six cases in London.
