Hollywood actor Kevin Spacey has accused his alleged assault victim of manipulating text messages in documents filed in his ongoing felony indecent assault and battery case.
According to reports, Spacey claimed in documents filed on May 31, 2019, that his alleged victim, who has been identified as William Little, deleted messages from his phone.
“On November 2, 2017 Mr. Little emailed Officer Kelly of the Nantucket Police Department screenshots of what he purported to be text messages exchanged on the night in question (1) between himself and his then girlfriend and (2) in a group text with at least six of his friends," the documents read.
“One month later, on November 29, 2017, Mr. Little’s mother, Heather Unruh, turned Mr. Little’s cell phone over to the Commonwealth and consented to the search of his phone. A subsequent analysis of Mr. Little cell phone revealed that he deleted exculpatory text messages and sent screenshots of these manipulated text messages to Officer Kelly in support of his claims.”
His lawyers are now demanding access to the alleged victim's phone.
The 'House of Cards' actor stands charged of allegedly groping an 18-year-old man in a Nantucket restaurant in 2016. He had pleaded not guilty to the charge.
