Kevin Spacey has been found not guilty of sexually assaulting four men.
After 12 hours and 26 minutes, following a trial at Southwark Crown Court, the jury panel acquitted Spacey of seven counts of sexual assault, one count of causing a person to engage in sexual activity without consent and one count of causing a person to engage in penetrative sexual activity without consent.
The 64-year-old, had been on trial after being accused of sexually assaulting four men between 2001 and 2013.
From the get-go, the actor denied all charges, referring to the allegations as a 'stab in the back'.
The prosecution’s claimed that Spacey had allegedly grabbed three men by the crotch and had performed a sex act on another man while he was asleep in his flat, a claim which the jurors rejected.
One complainant alleged the actor grabbed his crotch while he drove him to a party hosted by Sir Elton John, back in the early 2000s.
Jurors were told Spacey allegedly grabbed another man’s crotch 'like a cobra' after meeting him at a West End theatre in the mid-2000s following an alleged 'barrage of vile comments'.
Sir Elton John was called as a defence witness as a number of famous names were mentioned in the trial.
He wiped tears from his eyes in the witness box as he told jurors his world 'exploded' when allegations against him first emerged on the internet in 2017.
Spacey also told the court he could have sex 'all the time', described the prosecution’s case against him as 'weak', and claimed his victims were after 'money, money and then money'.
