Kevin Spacey: Charge against actor dropped after alleged victim pleads the 5th – CNN

(CNN)Massachusetts prosecutors on Wednesday dropped a criminal case against actor Kevin Spacey, a week after a man who accused him of assault pleaded the fifth on the witness stand.

Cape and Islands District Attorney Michael O’Keefe said the decision was made “due to the unavailability of the complaining witness,” according to a court filing.
Spacey, 59, had faced criminal charge of indecent assault and battery in connection with a July 2016 incident where he was accused of groping a young man at a Nantucket bar. The former “House of Cards” star had pleaded not guilty and faced up to five years in prison, if convicted.
