She accused Mr Spacey of buying her then 18-year-old son alcohol - the drinking age in MA is 21 - and then groping him.

The former House of Cards star was pictured smiling as he arrived at a district court in Nantucket, Massachusetts, dressed in a grey suit and patterned shirt.

The 59-year-old actor stood quietly with his hands clasped as the clerk read out the charge "that in the town of Nantucket on July 18, 2016 (the defendant) did commit indecent assault and battery on someone 14 and over".

The next hearing is scheduled for March 4 at 11:00 a.m. local time.

His lawyer, Alan Jackson, said there is data that is "likely exculpatory" for Spacey.

In Monday's court session, Judge Thomas Barrett ordered Spacey "to stay away from his alleged victim", Thys reports.

Heather Unruh, a former TV news anchor in New England, held a press conference in November 2017 saying her son had been sexually assaulted by Spacey. He said he left the establishment when Spacey went to the bathroom. The alleged victim told investigators he texted his girlfriend about the incident, and he snapchatted video to prove it, according to the incident report. Spacey said he did not remember such an encounter but apologized if the allegations were true.

It is the first case against him to be prosecuted since a number of sex assault and harassment claims were made at the end of 2017.

He is also used the statement to come out as gay.

Mr Spacey said he had no memory of the event, but publicly apologised before issuing an "absolute" denial of all other allegations.

Actor Kevin Spacey got pulled over for speeding at a Northern Virginia airport on Monday - hours after he was arraigned on felony sex crimes in MA, police said. The controversy led to Spacey being dropped from the Netflix series "House of Cards" and erased from the film "All the Money in the World". The character was killed off in the show after Spacey was sacked.

"Of course, some believed everything and have been just waiting with bated breath to hear me confess it all". "I can promise you this", he said. Wouldn't that be easy if it was all so simple? You wouldn't rush to judgement without facts, would you? "If I didn't pay the price for the things we both know I did do, I'm certainly not going to pay the price for the things I didn't do". "Did you?" he said.
