Oscar-winning actor Kevin Spacey was found not guilty of nine sex offences at London’s Southwark Crown Court on Wednesday.
The actor known for his movie and TV roles including “House of Cards” cried when the verdict was delivered.
The 64-year-old Hollywood star denied all the charges – which included seven counts of sexual assault – against four men during the time when he was the artistic director of London’s Old Vic theater.
The BBC reports Spacey denied using his power as an A-lister to get people into bed, saying he tried to help others – and described the allegations as a “stab in the back” during the monthlong trial.
