Kevin Spacey Appears Briefly In Court Via Video Link As Date Set For UK Trial

A date has been set for Kevin Spacey’s high-profile UK trial on charges of sex offences.

The American Beauty star’s trial will start on 28 June, it was revealed in Southwark Crown Court today, which is where the trial will take place for around four weeks.

Spacey appeared via video link from an undisclosed location, according to Reuters, where the 63-year-old only spoke to confirm his name and could hear the proceedings during a circa-15-minute hearing. He has been granted unconditional bail prior to the trial.

Spacey has previously pleaded not guilty to 12 charges relating to alleged offences against four men, which are said to have taken place between 2001 and 2013. He appeared at London’s Old Bailey last year and denied five allegations relating to three men, before subsequently appearing at Southwark Crown Court to plead not guilty to additional charges relating to a different complainant.

He was previously staging something of a comeback and was due to star in upcoming movie 1242: Gateway to the West but was replaced when additional charges were brought against him.

In October last year, a jury in Anthony Rapp’s high-profile $40M sexual misconduct lawsuit found Spacey not liable for damages.
