• Actor Kevin Spacey is facing new charges of sexual assault
  • The new charges come from alleged incidents in the U.K.
  • Spacey will appear in court this December

In July, Kevin Spacey pleaded not guilty to four sexual assault charges and one charge of forcing penetrative sexual activity, regarding offenses that allegedly occurred between 2005 and 2013 in the U.K.

In October, he was found not liable in the sex abuse lawsuit brought by Anthony Rapp. At the time, Spacey's attorney said she was "very grateful to the jury for seeing through these false allegations."

Rapp took to Twitter, saying he was "deeply grateful for the opportunity to have my case heard before a jury, and I thank the members of the jury for their service."

New sexual assault charges against Kevin Spacey

Now, NBC News reports that the 63-year-old actor is facing seven more sexual assault charges in the U.K.

The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) says the charges stem from "multiple sexual assaults against one man between 2001 and 2004."

"The authority to charge follows a review of the evidence gathered by the Metropolitan Police in its investigation," says Rosemary Ainslie, head of the CPS Special Crime Division, via a statement.

"The CPS has also authorized one charge of causing a person to engage in sexual activity without consent," Ainslie added.

Kevin Spacey will appear at London's Westminster Magistrates' Court on Dec. 16
