  • LA prosecutors say second sexual assault case against Kevin Spacey is still under review

Prosecutors in Los Angeles have declined a 1992 sexual assault case against Kevin Spacey because too much time has passed since the alleged incident took place.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney's office told AFP that the cases involving Spacey and Seagal were not being pursued because the statute of limitations had run out while the case against Anderson was being dropped because the victim had declined to be interviewed by police.

A man alleged Spacey had assaulted him in West Hollywood in October 1992.

According to Variety, there is still one more case that the sheriff's department are reviewing regarding relating to the shamed House of Cards star.

Seagal's attorney Anthony Falangetti denied the accusations on behalf of his client in a statement to ABC News. "So there was a "lack of sufficient evidence" to proceed with a case", the L.A. County District Attorney's Office said.

Two years ago, California legislators enacted a law eliminating the previous 10-year-old statute of limitations for rape - the most serious of sex crimes - but that does not include offences before 2016.

A number of allegations of sexual misconduct have been made against the Oscar-winning actor since last November, when he was accused by actor Anthony Rapp of making a sexual advance in 1986. At least six accusations of sex crimes are being investigated by London's Metropolitan Police. The victim was 18 years old at the time.

He apologized for any inappropriate conduct with Rapp but has not commented since and has stepped away from public life.

Earlier this year, Regina Simons, an extra who appeared in Seagal's 1994 film On Deadly Ground, accused Seagal of rape after numerous women came forward with accounts of sexual misconduct.

He was also sacked from Netflix's House Of Cards and edited out of Sir Ridley Scott's All The Money In The World.
