Kevin Spacey says he will ‘voluntarily’ appear in the UK to defend himself against sex assault charges

Kevin Spacey has said he will “voluntarily” appear in the UK to defend himself against charges of sexual assault.

The actor, 62, is to be charged with four counts of sexual assault against three men, the Crown Prosecution Service announced this month.

He faces another charge of causing a person to engage in penetrative sexual activity without consent.

The alleged incidents took place in London between March 2005 and August 2008 and in Gloucestershire in April 2013.

Spacey has now responded to the allegations, saying he is “confident” he can prove his innocence.

“I very much appreciate the Crown Prosecution Service’s statement in which they carefully reminded the media and the public that I am entitled to a fair trial, and innocent until proven otherwise,” he told Good Morning America through a spokesperson.

“While I am disappointed with their decision to move forward, I will voluntarily appear in the UK as soon as can be arranged and defend myself against these charges, which I am confident will prove my innocence.”
