A man previously accused Spacey of sexually assaulting him in October 1992, but "the allegation is outside the statute of limitations, therefore, an analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the evidence is not warranted and prosecution is declined", according to an L.A. County D.A. charge evaluation worksheet.

LOS ANGELES Los Angeles prosecutors have cited the statute of limitations while saying they won't file sexual assault cases against actors Kevin Spacey and Steven Seagal involving incidents in the early 1990s.

Representatives for Seagal could not be reached for comment.

The D.A.'s task force was formed after dozens of Hollywood directors, producers and actors were accused of sexual misconduct in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein sexual abuse scandal. However, the LA district attorney's office decided not to file charges after she "declined to be interviewed by the investigating officer".

They say any alleged sex crime involving an adult that occurred in 1992 would fall outside of California's statute of limitations.

Spacey, 58, is the former artistic director of the Old Vic theatre in London and is the subject of multiple police investigations in MA and England.

But on Tuesday, the DA dropped the case against the 48-year-old 'because the woman refused to cooperate and there was not enough evidence to go forward, ' the website claimed.

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.

This isn't the first time Anthony has had such cases pinned against him. Spacey apologized for any inappropriate conduct with Rapp but has not commented since and has stepped away from public life.

He was also sacked from Netflix drama, House Of Cards, and erased from Ridley Scott's, All The Money In The World.
