Kevin Spacey to appear in court to plead not guilty to the sexual assault charge

The 59-year-old actor stood quietly with his hands clasped as the clerk read out the charge "that in the town of Nantucket on July 18, 2016 (the defendant) did commit indecent assault and battery on someone 14 and over".

Spacey did not appear to enter a plea during the court appearance.

The actor has been ordered to stay away and have no contact with the alleged victim and his family.

In a recent hearing to determine if there was enough evidence for Spacey to be charged, Spacey's lawyers questioned a MA state trooper about the video. On Monday, the judge granted a defense request to preserve cellphone evidence and set a preliminary hearing date for March 4. Spacey's lawyers say some of the data is "likely exculpatory". The alleged victim was represented by assistant district attorney Michael Giardino.

He is accused of sexually assaulting an 18-year-old male after plying him with alcohol at a bar in Nantucket in 2016.

The accuser's attorney, Mitchell Garabedian, issued a statement Monday saying his client hopes to serve as an example to other victims.

The victim, who is also suing Mr Spacey in civil court, will not be present during the criminal trial. One former production assistant told CNN that Spacey sexually assaulted him during one of the show's early seasons.

He said the two were standing in a crowd by a piano when Spacey unzipped the teen's trousers and groped his genitals for about three minutes.

Hernandez said she did not know what time Spacey was pulled over, what kind of auto he was driving, or how fast he was allegedly driving.

He had tried to avoid appearing in person at the hearing, on the beach resort island of Nantucket off the MA coast, saying in court papers he believes his "presence will amplify the negative publicity already generated in connection with this case".

In a video titled "Let Me Be Frank", he appeared in character as Frank Underwood from the Netflix series House of Cards, and said "I'm certainly not going to pay the price for the thing I didn't do".

Spacey's lawyers have tried to poke holes in the case, noting that the teenager didn't immediately report the allegations and that authorities have no witnesses to the actual groping.
