Hollywood actor, Kevin Spacey, has finally appeared before the court. The actor showed up in the Nantucket court on Monday with his legal team for an arraignment in a sexual assault case.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, this is the first time the actor will appear before the Nantucket District Court Judge Thomas Barrett, following the indecent assault in an incident which happened in July 2016.
Report revealed that he did not speak in the court has his attorneys had entered a not-guilty plea on his behalf ahead of the hearing.
At the end of the hearing, the judge set March 4 as the next date and allowed the defense’s request that Spacey not have to be present so long as he is available on phone.
And this comes days after Spacey asked the judge to be allowed to skip the proceeding because he lives outside the state of Massachusetts and “my presence will amplify the negative publicity already generated in connection with this case,” according to a motion filed by his legal team.
