The Los Angeles County District Attorney's office told AFP that the cases involving Spacey and Seagal were not being pursued because the statute of limitations had run out while the case against Anderson was being dropped because the victim had declined to be interviewed by police.

This particular allegation against Spacey involved an adult man who accused Spacey of sexually assaulting him in West Hollywood in October of 1992.

Charges won't be filed against Kevin Spacey, Steven Seagal or Anthony Anderson in cases of sexual misconduct that arose in the past year, Los Angeles County prosecutors announced Tuesday.

Kevin Spacey, left, and Steven Seagal won't face criminal charges following allegations from the 1990s because the alleged incidents are beyond the statute of limitations.

Prosecutors are reviewing a second case against Spacey that includes allegations he attacked a man in Malibu in October 2016.

Jones had spent the past five seasons on the roster, including three as Ben Roethlisberger's backup, before being let go Saturday. No matter when Bell shows up, there's not going to be any ill-will toward from anyone on the roster, according to Pouncey.

Just prior to the actor's dismissal from House Of Cards in November previous year Star Trek actor Anthony Rapp came forward with allegations that Spacey made an unwanted sexual advance against him when he was 14.

Another sexual assault allegation against Spacey, also originating from the sheriff's department and turned over to the task force on August 22, is still under review.

When the case first arose, a representative from Anthony's team said the actor denied the allegations.

A number of people later came forward accusing Spacey of sexual harassment, misconduct and assault - including eight people on the set of the political Netflix series, and 20 testimonies from people at the Old Vic, where he served as artistic director for over a decade.

He was dropped past year from the Netflix television series House of Cards and erased from the film All the Money in the World.
