The boy who claims that Kevin Spacey assaulted him at a bar in Nantucket in July 2016 missed the phone he had to hand over to Spacey's lawyers, who they claim could prove the actor's innocence. This is what the lawyer of the alleged victim said, reports USA Today.
Spacey's legal team demanded that the phone be brought as evidence because he suspected the boy would have removed Oscar-winning text messages that would prove that the actor was not to blame.
According to the man's lawyer, "he and his parents searched everywhere, but they did not find the device."
The judge now gives them time until July 8 to take the phone out of the water, or else the prosecutor, his mother and the lawyer should explain in court how that could have happened.
Kevin allegedly touched the man, who was 18 at the time of the incident, immoral for a few minutes and opened the fly's zipper after the alleged victim asked for a photo and a signature. The 59-year-old actor says he is not guilty of these allegations.
