Two-Time Oscar-winning actor Kevin Spacey will appear in a UK court later this week, charged with multiple sexual offences

Spacey was initially questioned by British police in 20-19 over claims he had assaulted several men, with the former “House of Cards” star running London’s Old Vic theatre between 2004 and 2015.

The nation’s Crown Prosecution Service officially authorised charges against Spacey last month.

Kevin Spacey faces five charges in total.

According to the Crown Prosecution Service, these include:

o   Two counts of sexual assault in London in 2005 against one man

o   One count of sexual assault in London in 2008 against second man

o   And one count of sexual assault in 2013 against a third man in Gloucestershire

o   He also faces one count of causing a person to engage in penetrative sexual activity without consent in London in 2008 – and that’s against the second man.

The police have also said that the two of the men are aged in their 30s now.

The other is aged in his 40s.

Police confirmed that he is in the country and have formally charged him.

The charges follow a review of evidence gathered by the Metropolitan Police.

Some weeks ago – Spacey had said he would voluntarily return to the UK to face these charges.

Metropolitan police have confirmed he is now in the country.

Now that police have confirmed he is in the country and have forally charged him, what happens now?

In a statement to Good Morning America in May, Spacey says that he was disappointed that this is going ahead, he was confident he would prove his innocence.

He also reminded people in that GMA statement that he was innocent until proven otherwise

Kevin Spacey is due to appear in Westminster Magistrate’s Court at 10am on Thursday local time.
