Massachusetts prosecutors drop sex assault case against actor Kevin Spacey

Source: NBC News

A Massachusetts prosecutor on Wednesday asked for charges to be dropped against actor Kevin Spacey, who had been accused of groping a young man at a Nantucket bar three years ago.

Cape & Islands District Attorney Michael O'Keefe cited "unavailability of the complaining witness" in filing for dismissal in Nantucket District Court.

The case against Spacey appeared to suffer a fatal blow last week when Spacey's accuser invoked his Fifth Amendment rights after being questioned about his role in the deleting of text messages from a phone key to the case.

Spacey's defense had demanded to examine the accuser's cell phone that he had in the early morning hours of July 8, 2016 when the alleged incident happened at the Club Car restaurant and bar in Nantucket.

It seems like the mother was doing something with the phone that wasn't right.

5. So according to the law

 

Spacey is innocent of any wrongdoing yet loses out of House of Cards. What happened to innocent until proven guilty?

9. I'm just saying the we used to have innocent until proven guilty.

 

Actually in a nonlegal way we have never had innocent until proven guilty.

11. We are innocent until proven guilty in the eyes of the law.

But that doesnít stop other people from doing what they want. Itís like consequences to being seen at a white supremacy rally. If youíre doxxed, nothing is stopping you from speaking your mind, per the first amendment. Also nothing stopping your family and friends from treating you like crap after they find out what you are.

12. Good News! Spacey is deserved an apology.

A guy working at a restaurant/bar is a "young" man only for the purposes of having his Mom weep publicly to shale some cash out of a wealthy person. The man refused to give up his cell phone records. I bet Mom found out he was looking for something. Or someone.

I think he finally saw some justice. Great actor.
