Kevin Spacey was due to appear in court today charged with groping a teenager on a U.S. island.

It's the first criminal case brought against the 59-year-old actor since other allegations of sexual misconduct surfaced against him in 2017.

The disgraced actor, who is set to be arraigned in a MA court on Monday on charges of sexual assault against an 18-year-old restaurant employee, is ready for his close-up again, 14 months after his world fell apart following a series of misconduct allegations.

The two-time Oscar victor previously said he will plead not guilty to a charge of felony indecent assault and battery.

Spacey was ordered to meet with the probation department before leaving the premises to sign the conditions of his no contact order with the alleged victim.

The House of Cards actor had asked that his lawyers represent him at the hearing, but Judge Thomas Barrett declined, forcing Mr Spacey to appear before him at around 4pm Irish time.

Amid other claims of assault or harassment - some at The Old Vic theatre in London where Spacey had been artistic director - he was dropped from House of Cards and other roles.

Spacey's arraignment comes more than a year after the busboy's mother went public with the allegations against Spacey.

Once one of Hollywood's most famous and recognizable actors, Spacey's career collapsed in November 2017 following several allegations of sexual assault and harassment.

After meeting the actor and telling him he was 23 years old - the legal drinking age is 21 in MA - he said he started drinking first beer and then whiskey with Spacey at his urging. After the charges against were announced last month, Spacey released a video, and in the same, he had said, "I'm certainly not going to pay the price for the thing I didn't do". "You want me back". "You're smarter than that", Spacey said in the video. And besides, I know what you want.

His first accuser, actor Anthony Rapp, said Spacey climbed on top of him on a bed when Rapp was 14 and Spacey 26.

Spacey apologized for any inappropriate conduct with Rapp.
