The "House of Cards" fame star was on Monday arraigned on a charge of indecent assault and battery, a felony charge that comes with up to five years in prison, reports cnn.com.
The alleged victim is the son of former television news presenter Heather Unruh, who spoke publicly about the incident in 2017.
Also, Defense attorneys asked the court to preserve cell phone data and other text messages from the victim from the date of the incident until six months afterward, which defense attorneys said would be "likely exculpatory" for Spacey.
The next court appearance is scheduled for March 4.
