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. "Therefore, an analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the evidence is not warranted and the matter is declined".

The accusation against Seagal, who has faced multiple allegations of sexual misconduct over the years, stemmed from an alleged sexual assault in 1993, the statute of limitations for which reportedly expired in 1999.

"The reporting party alleged that he was the victim of a sexual assault paperwork from the district attorney's office said on Tuesday".

The 59-year-old is also being investigated in the United Kingdom for six sexual assault claims over 22 years.

Clockwise from left to right: Anthony Anderson, Steven Seagal and Kevin Spacey.

Anderson had been accused of assault by a woman who catered an event he organized, according to reports.

Spacey was artistic director at London's The Old Vic theatre between 2004 and 2015. A sexual battery allegation from 2016 in Malibu is still under review by the district attorney.

Spacey and Seagal are facing potential charges in other cases now under investigation. The victim was 18 years old at the time.

The two-time Oscar victor has been accused of sexual misconduct by at least 15 men, with alleged incidents spanning his decades in film and on the stage.

As the number of accusations escalated, Netflix cut Spacey from his lead role in the award-winning series House of Cards.

Addressing the accusations, which were made last October, the Spacey released a statement explaining that he did not remember the alleged encounter but "if I did behave then as he describes, I owe him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behaviour".

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