At the hearing, Spacey’s lawyer said he “strongly denies” all allegations and will appear in a British court to prove his innocence and move on with his life. Two-time Oscar-winning actor Kevin Spacey’s career has been significantly derailed by allegations of sexual assault. He was removed from high-profile shows like Ridley Scott’s All the Money in the World and Netflix’s House of Cards.

During his opening statement, the judge acknowledged the amount of publicity this case has attracted and advised the juror to avoid media coverage as much as possible. If Kevin Spacey is found guilty of these charges, he may face jail time. The actor is currently out on unconditional bail pending trial.

Previously, Kevin Spacey said in an interview with Germany’s ZEITmagazin: “I know that at this point there are people who are ready to hire me once I am cleared of these charges in London. Once that happens, they are ready to move on.”
