Jury sides with Kevin Spacey in Anthony Rapp's 1986 molestation trial

A Manhattan jury found Kevin Spacey not liable for battery in a sexual assault lawsuit filed by fellow actor Anthony Rapp.

The jury came to its decision after a two-week trial in Manhattan after an hour of deliberation.

Rapp sued Spacey in 2020, alleging that the then-26-year-old star sexually assaulted him in 1986 when he was 14.

Spacey said he didn’t remember the encounter and offered his sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior.

Rapp's allegations brought Spacey's career to a grinding halt in 2017 and he was fired from his role in the series ‘House of Cards'.

Rapp had said the alleged incident caused him severe emotional distress that lasted for decades and affected his career.

The actor, who is best known for his roles on Star Trek: Discovery, has a net worth of $6 million in 2022.

Kevin Spacey has a net worth of $30 million in 2022.
