The District Attorney's office said in a charge evaluation sheet released on Tuesday that the allegation was outside the statue of limitations and that prosecution had been declined.

This particular allegation against Spacey involved an adult man who accused Spacey of sexually assaulting him in West Hollywood in October of 1992.

The case remains under review, prosecutors said.

Spacey, who has been publicly accused of sexual misconduct by multiple men - some of whom said they were minors when the alleged incidents occurred - is also under investigation by London Metropolitan Police for a series of alleged incidents in the United Kingdom, the Los Angeles Times reported in July.

In 2017, police began investigations into an allegation of a 2008 assault in the London borough of Lambeth and two allegations of sexual assault in 2005, one in Westminster and one in Lambeth. The district attorney's office has yet to charge any of the accused.

Seagal has denied the accusations against him. A sexual battery allegation from 2016 in Malibu is still under review by the district attorney.


The Anderson case, which was investigated by the Los Angeles Police, involved a woman who claimed he assaulted her earlier this year.

Actor Anthony Rapp, 46, told BuzzFeed last October that when he was a teenager, Spacey, then in his 20s, made a sexual advance toward him.

In the case of Seagal, the allegation of assault is from 1993, when the victim was 18 years old.

Actor Kevin Spacey speaks with the media at the premiere of Netflix's television series "House of Cards" at Alice Tully Hall in the Lincoln Center in New York City January 30, 2013. Spacey apologized for any inappropriate conduct with Rapp but has not commented since and has stepped away from public life.

As a result, Spacey was sacked from his lead role on House of Cards, and his most recent film, Billionaire Boys Club, bombed at the box office, with a $618 opening weekend - Spacey's career low.
