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.
Kevin Spacey is planning to make a big movie comeback with a European project.
NANTUCKET, Massachusetts (Fox 32 News) - Actor Kevin Spacey is expected in court on Monday to face sexual assault charges.
Spacey said he had no memory of the event, but publicly apologised before issuing an "absolute" denial of all other allegations.
She accused Spacey of buying her then 18-year-old son alcohol - the drinking age in MA is 21 - and then groping him.
The young man had been working for the summer at the restaurant on the tiny destination island.
He had remained in the bar after his shift had finished to see Spacey, of whom he was a fan. Spacey's lawyers wrote that the teen lied about his age, "welcomed" drinks bought by Spacey, left the bar with him to smoke a cigarette and gave Spacey his phone number. The alleged victim was represented by assistant district attorney Michael Giardino. The young man declined, suspecting the actor was trying to seduce him.
Actress Ellen Barkin is among Spacey's peers, who feel Spacey's Christmas message was and his comeback plans are ill-advised: "Kevin Spacey is sending a very disturbing message as he chastises his audience..."
The two-time Oscar victor - recognized for his supporting role in "Usual Suspects" in 1996 and his lead role in "American Beauty" in 2000 - was considered one of the finest actors of his generation.
The alleged victim is the son of former Boston news anchor Heather Unruh, who has spoken publicly about the incident - one in a string of sexual assault accusations against the former House of Cards star.
It was claimed the alleged victim told others of the incident at the time, but reportedly cited his embarrassment having been "sexually assaulted by a famous person". You wouldn't rush to judgment without facts, would you? Did you? No, not you. Spacey did not say a word as he walked through the mass of cameras.
"Of course some believed everything and have just been waiting with bated breath to hear me confess it all", he said with the character's Southern accent. "If I didn't pay the price for the things we both know I did do, I'm certainly not going to pay the price for the things I didn't do".
This is not the first time he is facing sexual assault allegations.
Garabedian is not a part of the criminal case against Spacey.
