Kevin Spacey, Steven Seagal won't be prosecuted for alleged sex assaults

Prosecutors in Los Angeles have dropped a sexual assault case against actor Kevin Spacey because too much time has passed since the alleged incident took place.

Off the hook: The Los Angeles County District Attorney's office has declined to press charges against Anthony Anderson for an alleged 2017 assault.

Prosecutors are reviewing a second case against Spacey that includes allegations he attacked a man in Malibu in October 2016.

The statute of limitations reportedly passed in the Spacey and Seagal cases, whereas Anderson's alleged victim "refused to cooperate with investigators", according to Variety.

The special task force established by Lacey last fall to center on Hollywood allegations first announced on August 9 that they had been handed the file on Seagal and Anderson.

Prosecutors have also decided not to file charges against actors Steven Seagal and Anthony Anderson over alleged sex crimes.

The case for the action-movie star Seagal, who was accused of assaulting an 18-year-old acquaintance in 1993, was also abandoned on the same grounds.

In October, actor Anthony Rapp said that in 1986, when Rapp was 14, Spacey made sexual advances toward him in a hotel room. At least six accusations of sex crimes are being investigated by London's Metropolitan Police.

Anderson, star of ABC's Black-ish, was accused of sexual assault earlier in 2018, according to Variety. Since then, several men have come forward to report incidents involving the actor.

As the number of accusations escalated, Netflix cut Spacey from his lead role in the award-winning series House of Cards. Spacey apologized for any inappropriate conduct with Rapp but has not commented since and has stepped away from public life.

He was dropped previous year from the Netflix television series House of Cards and erased from the film All the Money in the World.
