Kevin Spacey: Facing Jail Time Over Latest Sexual Assault Allegations?!
It’s only been one week since actor Anthony Rapp went public with accusations that he was sexually assaulted by Kevin Spacey at the age of 14.
But in that short time, the former House of Cards star has watched his career and public reputation come tumbling down in dramatic fashion.
Earlier this week, Spacey was fired by Netflix over allegations of misconduct, and as with Harvey Weinstein and Bill Cosby before him, Spacey’s list of accusers just keeps getting longer.
The latest to level charges against the 58-year-old actor is a former Boston news anchor named Heather Unruh.
Baco on October 13, Unruh tweeted that “a loved one” had once been assaulted by Spacey.
“The #weinsteinscandal has emboldened me,” she wrote.
“I was a Kevin Spacey fan until he assaulted a loved one. Time the dominoes fell.”
Today, Unruh went into shocking specifics.
At a press conference held this afternoon, Unruh revealed that her then-18-year-old son was groped by Spacey last year:
“[Spacey] stuck his hand inside my son’s pants and grabbed his genitals,” Unruh told reporters.
“Nothing could have prepared my son for how that sexual assault would make him feel as a man,” she added.
“It harmed him and it cannot be undone.”
Forced to answer the usual questions about why her son didn’t immediately file a police report, Unruh responded:
“He knew the kind of attention that would result from making an accusation about such a public person. I can assure you that this is not the kind of attention anyone wants.”
Unruh says Spacey plied her son with “drink after drink” prior to assaulting him.
She says her son falsely told the actor that he was of legal age to consume, but adds, “whether he was over 21 or not, Kevin Spacey had no right to sexually assault him. There was no consent.”
According to Unruh, the molestation continued for over an hour and ended only when Spacey went to the restroom and a stranger advised her son to flee.
Unruh says she would like to see Spacey put behind bars for his crimes, and notes that she and her son have filed a police report in Nantucket, where the alleged incident took place.
