On July 16, Massachusetts prosecutors dropped the groping case against Kevin Spacey, CBS Boston reported.
Cape & Islands District Attorney Michael O'Keefe said in a court filing that he was filing a nolle prosequi ( a formal notice of abandonment of a lawsuit by a plaintiff or prosecutor ) "due to the unavailability of the complaining witness."
A then-18-year-old man who worked at the island's Club Car bar claimed Spacey assaulted him three years ago. The accuser said the Oscar winner allegedly bought him several alcoholic drinks, then touched him inappropriately.
The development in the criminal case came about two weeks after the accuser dropped the lawsuit he filed against Spacey.
However, the House of Cards actor has faced several other accusations. His first accuser, actor Anthony Rapp, said Spacey climbed on top of him on a bed when Rapp was 14 and Spacey was 26. Spacey said he did not remember such an encounter, but apologized if the allegations were true. Spacey also came out of the closet on social media after Rapp's accusationa move that was widely criticized.
