  • Kevin Spacey is due to appear in court in Nantucket on January 7

In documents obtained by TMZ, Spacey's attorneys said that appearing in court would "amplify the negative publicity already generated in connection with the case".

BOSTON (AP) - Kevin Spacey says his presence at a MA courthouse on accusations that he groped a young man would "amplify the negative publicity already generated in connection with this case".

Actor Kevin Spacey has asked a MA judge to skip his arraignment in a Nantucket court next week on sexual assault charges.

He will plead not guilty.

"On December 20, 2018 following a public show cause hearing at Nantucket District Court, Clerk Magistrate Brian Kearney issued a criminal complaint of indecent assault and battery against Kevin S. Fowler, also known as Kevin Spacey", a statement from the Cape and Islands District Attorney office read.

The charges against Spacey stem from an alleged 2016 incident that took place in a Nantucket bar.

Ms Unruh has told reporters her son didn't report the assault at the time because he was embarrassed and scared.

He had previously been accused by multiple people of sexual harassment, misconduct and assault.

"All that can be heard of Spacey is him telling the photographer: ".not a big deal, I appreciate what you're doing" and "try to stay warm and have a happy new year".

Neither Spacey nor his lawyers have addressed the allegation publicly, but the actor released a video last week in the voice of Frank Underwood, his character on Netflix's "House of Cards" in which he said, "I'm certainly not going to pay the price for the thing I didn't do". So we're not done, no matter what anyone says, and I know what you want.
