We are learning new details about the sexual assault allegations against Kevin Spacey.
CNN’s Miguel Marquez has more on what the mother of the accuser claims happened between her son and the actor.
“You trusted me even though you knew you shouldn’t.” Kevin Spacey:
The video titled Let Me Be Frank, posted to Kevin Spacey’s verified Twitter account shortly after indecent assault and battery charges brought by a then 18-year-old accuser whose mother spoke out on his behalf last year.
“In July 2016, actor Kevin Spacey sexually assaulted my son.” Heather Unruh, mother of alleged victim
Spacey, in his video, doesn’t address the charges. He performs the video in a kitchen… Santa Claus apron on and in Frank Underwood character from the Netflix show House of Cards that Spacey starred in for 5 seasons until he was fired after several allegations of sexual misconduct surfaced.
“You wouldn’t believe the worst without evidence, would you? You wouldn’t rush to judgment without facts, would you?… Did you?” Kevin Spacey
Netflix had no comment about the video whose timing, tone and substance were jarring given the charges the actor knew were coming, there was a hearing on the case 4 days before Spacey posted the video .
“Conclusions can be so deceiving.” Kevin Spacey
One piece of evidence Spacey’s accuser has against the 59-year-old actor – says the complaint – is video of the assault itself. The accuser’s girlfriend – when interviewed by police – says she “received a Snapchat video from [her boyfriend] showing Spacey touching the front of [the accuser’s] pants by his crotch.”
“Kevin Spacey bought him drink after drink after drink. And when my son was drunk, Spacey made his move.” Heather Unruh, mother of alleged victim
Her son – the accuser – admitted to police he told Spacey that night he was 23 not his real age of 18, according to the complaint. He says the assault happened late night, after his shift as a bus boy at Nantucket’s Club Car Restaurant.
“The victim, my son, was a star-struck straight 18-year-old young man.” Heather Unruh, mother of alleged victim
The accuser claims – after several drinks – Spacey asked sexual questions, exchanged phone numbers, tried to get him to his house, then in the packed bar the accuser claims “Spacey used his left hand and starting rubbing [his] thigh” and eventually sexually assaulting him for about three minutes.
“Nothing could have prepared my son for how that sexual assault would make him feel as a man. It harmed him. And it cannot be undone.” Heather Unruh, mother of alleged victim
CNN has reached out to Spacey’s representatives for comment on the charges and his release of his video but we’ve had no response.
Spacey’s arraignment in this case is due January 7th Nantucket.
