The Los Angeles County District Attorney's office is declining to prosecute certain sex crime charges against Kevin Spacey, according to The Hollywood Reporter

The L.A. officials said the statute of limitations has passed for the case they were pursuing against Spacey, which occurred in 1992. 

The L.A. County District Attorney's office also announced on Tuesday they will not be prosecuting sex crime cases against actors Anthony Anderson and newly minted Russian special envoy to the U.S. Steven Seagal, according to the tabloid.

The statute of limitations has also reportedly passed for Seagal's case, and the reporting party declined to be interviewed for the case against Anderson. 

There is a second case still pending against Spacey in the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department. That case took place in October 2016, according to the department. 


Spacey has been accused of sexual misconduct and assault by multiple men, including several who were minors at the time. He has largely retreated from public view since the allegations became public, and he was fired from the hit Netflix series "House of Cards."

Spacey came out as gay after "Star Trek: Discovery" star Anthony Rapp went public with allegations that Spacey made sexual advances toward him when Rapp was 14 years old, prompting LGBTQ rights organization GLAAD to release a statement saying "coming-out stories should not be used to deflect from allegations of sexual assault." 

"This is not a coming-out story about Kevin Spacey, but a story of survivorship by Anthony Rapp and all those who bravely speak out against unwanted sexual advances," Sarah Kate Ellis, president and CEO of GLAAD, said at the time. "The media and public should not gloss over that."
