Kevin Spacey faces the court

Kevin Spacey has pleaded not guilty to sexual assault, as he appeared in court for the first time to face charges that he groped an 18-year-old in 2016.

The 59-year-old actor is accused of inappropriately touching an employee of the Club in Nantucket on the evening of 7 July.

He is charged with indecent assault and battery, which is a felony. If convicted, the Hollywood star faces a maximum of five years in prison and would be required to register as a sex offender.
