"Mr. Spacey bought him drink after drink after drink... and when my son was drunk Spacey made his move and sexually assaulted him. I want to make it clear. This was a criminal act. .... Spacey stuck his hand inside my son's pants and grabbed his genitals. And my son's efforts to shift his body to remove Spacey's hand were only momentarily successful. The violation continued...." "A concerned woman asked him if he was ok.... and told him to run."
"Shame on you for what you did to my son. And shame on you for using your apology to Anthony Rapp to come out as a gay man. It was an appalling attempt to deflect attention away from what you really are. A sexual predator."More information and the alleged sexual assault from LA Times.
From this week's phone interview with Darrell Jones (audio forthcoming):
"I saw you on TV today and I watched you have to cry for what you went through and I just want to be as public with my support as you were to me when you went to Chronicle and probably other people tried to convince you not to put me on TV concerning my innocence and you did."
"I can never pay you back for that nor can my family but I can support you... my lawyers, my whole team and I support you. I have faith that your case will be just like mine and you will get Justice because that is what is supposed to come your way.
"They do not take the kind of offenses lightly here in the Massachusetts prison system that Mr. Spacey is accused of."*********
