After three weeks of evidence presented by both the prosecution and defense, a London jury has reached a verdict in the Kevin Spacey sexual assault trial
Spacey, 64, denied charges of sexual offenses against four men between 2001 and 2013 — during which time Spacey served as artistic director at the Old Vic theater in the British capital. He pleaded not guilty to all of the charges – and a jury has now agreed.
After nearly 12 and a half hours of deliberation across three days, the jury returned on Wednesday and delivered its verdict that Spacey was not guilty on all counts.
Last year, a New York jury found Spacey not liable for battery on allegations he picked up actor Anthony Rapp and laid on top of him after a party way back in 1986.
Wednesday, Spacey had tears in his eyes as the jury cleared him of the charges.
Was his life ruined over mere accusations?
