As the actor’s sexual assault trial comes to a close, prosecutors told jurors on Wednesday that Kevin Spacey’s accusers are believable and that their claims should be treated with respect.

Spacey, 63, is on trial at London’s Southwark Crown Court for nine alleged sexual offenses he allegedly committed against four men between 2001 and 2013 while living in Britain, where he served as artistic director of the Old Vic theater beginning in 2003.

Spacey allegedly touched three out of the four accusers in an aggressive manner. The fourth alleges that Spacey gave him oral sex while he was unconscious at Spacey’s apartment.

Spacey has pled not guilty to all of the allegations, and he has argued in court that either his victims are telling the truth or that they are making up consensual sexual encounters.

Prosecutor Christine Agnew referred to Spacey as “a man who is used to getting his own way” in her final remarks.

She refuted Spacey’s claim that his accusers were “motivated by money” and characterized them as reliable witnesses who “just had enough of the secret of the truth that they have been carrying around for many years”.

“Society, possibly in 2023, is more sympathetic to women than it is to men in these circumstances,” she said.

“Men, one might think, are expected to behave like women did for years: ‘just put up with it, get on with it, don’t worry about it, it is just one of those things’.”

Such attitudes had allowed “people like the defendant … (to) get away with this type of behaviour for so long”, Agnew said.

Referring to character witnesses called by Spacey, she said: “He is undoubtedly someone who is kind to those he chooses to be kind to. History is littered with those that are benevolent to some and cruel to others.”

On Thursday, Spacey’s attorneys are scheduled to present their closing remarks.
