Spacey arrives at UK court to face sex assault charges

STORY: Spacey is accused of five offences: four counts of sexual assault, and a further charge of causing a person to engage in penetrative sexual activity without consent. Prosecutors say Spacey forced a man to have oral sex.

Police said the alleged assaults had taken place between March 2005 and April 2013 - four in the British capital and one in Gloucestershire, west England. They involved one man who is now in his 40s and two men now in their 30s.

The first hearing in his case is due to take place at London's Westminster Magistrates Court.

The 62-year-old, who won Oscars for best actor in "American Beauty" and best supporting actor in "The Usual Suspects", has previously denied all accusations of misconduct.
