Lawyers for actor Kevin Spacey entered a not guilty plea on his behalf at his arraignment today in Nantucket District Court.
Spacey appeared in the small courthouse with his two lawyers, entering through a media swarm. He was formally charged with sexual assault and battery of an 18-year-old, in connection with an incident from 2016.
The victim was working at the time as a bus boy at the Club Car restaurant and bar on Nantucket, where he encountered Spacey. Spacey allegedly ordered him drinks and inappropriately touched him. During the arraignment, Spacey was silent and left quickly after being charged. A further hearing has been set for March 4th, and he will not be required to appear.
