On Tuesday, the Los Angeles District Attorney's office said it would not prosecute the actor because it fell outside the California statute of limitations.

The particular allegation against Spacey that will not be pursued related to an adult man who accused the actor of sexually assaulting him in West Hollywood in October of 1992.

Prosecutors are however reviewing another case involving Spacey that includes allegations he attacked a man in Malibu in October 2016.

The cases were reviewed by a task force established to evaluate sex abuse allegations in the entertainment industry in the wake of dozens of women accusing disgraced film mogul Harvey Weinstein and others of abuse.
