Kevin Spacey has been charged with groping the 18-year-old son of a Boston TV anchor in 2016 - the first criminal case brought against the Oscar-winning actor since his career collapsed amid a string of sexual misconduct allegations over a year ago. He told Kevin Spacey that he was of legal age.
"Kevin Spacey bought him drink after drink after drink, and when my son was drunk, Spacey made his move and sexually assaulted him", Unruh said at the 2017 news conference.
Now, according to police, there is evidence sufficient to charge the actor. Spacey also used the statement to disclose he is gay.
The alleged victim is the son of former television news presenter Heather Unruh, who spoke publicly about the incident previous year.
"Wouldn't that be easy if it was all so simple?" he continued.
During the 36-minute show-cause hearing, Los Angeles-based criminal defense attorney Alan Jackson pointed out that Unruh's son did not report the incident to authorities the night it allegedly happened, or the morning after, and was not interviewed in-person about the incident for more than a year. We weren't afraid, not of what we said and not of what we did, and we're still not afraid.

Heavy smoke rose from the ministry building, which was surrounded by security forces as victims were rushed to hospital. No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, which bore the hallmarks of the Islamic State terror group.
"I'm as perplexed as everybody else about what he was trying to say and what he was trying to do with this odd and cryptic message", says Howard Bragman, longtime crisis manager and founder of La Brea Media.
"They're going to say I'm being disrespectful, not playing by the rules", he adds. Like I ever played by anyone's rules before. "I think there is a huge risk that this video can be portrayed in the wrong way". He then puts a ring on his right hand similar to the one his character wears in "House of Cards". Conclusions can be so deceiving.
It appears that Spacey is using his character as a way to defend himself in real life. What Spacey means by this line is unclear.
Appropriately, the current top viewer comment on the YouTube video is, "2018 has been weird as hell". In 2017, actor Anthony Rapp alleged that Spacey made a sexual advance towards him when the former was only 14 years old.
Actor Kevin Spacey's freaky House of Cards inspired video, which he posted on the same day it was revealed that he will be charged of felony sexual assault in MA, has raked up 4.5 million online views in 24 hours.
Unruh's teenage son was working as a busboy at the Nantucket restaurant at the time of the alleged incident. (Her son says he told Spacey he was 23, according to court documents.) She said the actor grabbed the drunken teenager's genitals even though the younger man tried to shift his body away, an account the victim also shared with the Cape and Islands state police, according to court documents.
