  • Robin Wright suggests'second chance for Kevin Spacey

The District Attorney's office said in a charge evaluation sheet released on Tuesday that the allegation was outside the statue of limitations and that prosecution had been declined.

The allegation was investigated by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department and was turned over to the task force to review for possible charges in April.

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

Spacey, who lost his role in the hit series "House of Cards" following sexual misconduct charges against him in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, had been accused of sexually assaulting an unidentified acquaintance in 1992. In both instances, the Los Angeles County District Attorney determined that both cases fall well outside the statute of limitations and as such, "an analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the evidence is not warranted".

But, Los Angeles prosecutors say they couldn't take the case forward because too much time had passed.

Seagal has denied the accusations against him.

There are no tears shed by Robin Wright's Claire Underwood in the latest House of Cards teaser, which confirms that Kevin Spacey's Frank Underwood is being killed off in the Netflix drama's sixth and final season.

After Rapp made his allegation, Spacey issued a statement saying he did not remember the encounter but apologised for "deeply inappropriate drunken behaviour". "Anthony unequivocally disputes the claim".

The case against Seagal involves an incident that allegedly occurred in 1993 involving an 18-year-old.

The action star was accused earlier this year by two women of sexual assault and rape.

United Kingdom police are also looking into several accusations against the actor. He has largely retreated from public view since the allegations became public, and he was sacked from the hit Netflix series "House of Cards".
