Pre-Trial Hearing Held on Nantucket in Kevin Spacey Case
NANTUCKET — Kevin Spacey's lawyers are trying to build his defense in his Massachusetts sex assault case.
In a pretrial hearing today, the lawyers are filing a motion to help to track down people at the Nantucket bar where the assault allegedly took place. The filing also noted that "not a single witness from the crowded bar corroborates (the accuser's) claims."
Spacey pleaded not guilty to sexual assault charges in January after being accused of groping an 18-year-old busboy at a restaurant in Nantucket in 2016.
Spacey's defense team filed several new court motions, including asking for cell phone records from the accuser and his girlfriend. Spacey's lawyer says the girlfriend claimed the alleged victim joked about the encounter until a press conference was held after the incident.
