Kevin Spacey asks to skip arraignment on sex assault charges

Kevin Spacey asks to skip arraignment on sex assault charges

If Spacey is found guilty of the charges he could serve up to five years in prison or 2.5-year term at a house of correction as well as added to the sex offender registry.

A MA judge on Monday denied Kevin Spacey's request to skip his arraignment on sexual assault charges.

In addition to his plea intent, Spacey has also declared that he would like to have the plea submitted without having to attend the arraignment due to a fear that him appearing in-person would "amplify the negative publicity already generated in connection with the case".

The 59-year-old Oscar victor, who plans on pleading not guilty, had argued in an affidavit that he should be excused from appearing in court because his presence would "amplify the negative publicity already generated in connection with this case".

Prosecutors have asked the judge to deny Spacey's request.

Patriots' Tom Brady says he 'absolutely' believes he'll be back in 2019

Nawaz’s legal team to challenge Al-Azizia verdict
The court acquitted him in the case of Flagship Investments, but in the other cases, he was fined the equivalent of $25 million. In July, Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz were convicted in absentia in the Avenfield case by the accountability court.

New York's Skyline Suddenly Lit Up With A Blue Glow
Lights flickered in the borough, the explosion could be seen lighting up the skyline and sky turned an eerie teal blue. Authorities in NY on Thursday said they were looking into a "transformer incident" following reports of an explosion.

Judge Thomas Barrett ordered Spacey to appear in a Nantucket, Massachusetts District Court on January 7th, according to Variety.

The complainant's mother, former TV news anchor Heather Unruh, said in a 2017 news conference that Spacey had bought her son "drink after drink after drink" and had "made his move" when the boy was drunk.

Presumably in response to the most recent felony charge, on Christmas Eve Spacey released a freakish three-minute video via Twitter called "Let Me Be Frank", in which he appears as his "House of Cards" character Frank Underwood.

It was unclear whether he was addressing the criminal charge. Her family chose to come forward after others went public with allegations of sexual misconduct against Spacey and other celebrities, she said.
