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

Both men are still facing investigation by the task force for separate alleged cases of sexual assault that are now being reviewed to see if they'll stand up in court.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office made no comments Tuesday on the merits of the accusations.

Prosecutors in Los Angeles have said they will not file charges against Kevin Spacey over an alleged sexual assault in 1992 because too much time has passed. The allegations, which he has repeatedly denied, have been levelled by actresses, film workers and reporters.

Petrol price hits a record high in Mumbai
The department said the sustained hikes in fuel prices over the past few months have placed a strain on consumers. The excise duty on petrol increased from Rs 9.48 per litre to a high of Rs 21.48 per litre by January 2016.


Prosecutors have also decided not to file charges against actors Steven Seagal and Anthony Anderson over alleged sex crimes.

Representatives for Seagal could not be reached for comment. The accuser refused to cooperate with LAPD investigators, and prosecutors said that lack of information is the reason no charges will be filed.

According to the district attorney's office, the victim was not a minor at the time of the alleged crime.

In a statement to PEOPLE, Anderson "unequivocally" disputed the woman's claims. A sexual battery allegation from 2016 in Malibu is still under review by the district attorney.

In October, actor Anthony Rapp said that in 1986, when Rapp was 14, Spacey made sexual advances toward him in a hotel room. Spacey, 59, stated that he did not remember the alleged incident, but apologized for what "would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior".
