UK police have announced that Oscar-winning actor Kevin Spacey has been charged with seven more sexual offences.
The 63-year-old actor was charged on Tuesday with a number of sexual offenses against the same man between 2001 and 2004, London’s Metropolitan Police said in a statement on Wednesday.
The U.K.’s Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) stated that all seven alleged offenses took place against the same “adult male.”
“The CPS has authorized additional criminal charges against Kevin Spacey, 63, for a number of sexual assaults against one man between 2001 and 2004,” the statement read.
“The CPS has also authorized one charge of causing a person to engage in sexual activity without consent. The authority to charge follows a review of the evidence gathered by the Metropolitan Police in its investigation,” Rosemary Ainslie, head of the CPS Special Crime Division, said in the statement.
Spacey is due to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court in London on December 16.
Wednesday’s charges follow a CPS announcement in May that Spacey would face four counts of sexual assault in the U.K., to which the actor pleaded “not guilty” during a July. 14 hearing at London’s Central Criminal Court – known locally as “The Old Bailey”.
Last month, a New York jury found him not liable for battery on allegations he picked up actor Anthony Rapp and laid on top of him after a party in 1986.
