Erased Evidence Could Exonerate Kevin Spacey In Nantucket Groping Case

Lawyers for actor Kevin Spacey say his Massachusetts sexual assault case should be dropped or delayed because of erased evidence. 

Spacey has previously pleaded not guilty to indecent assault and battery and made a surprise appearance in a Nantucket court yesterday. 

WCVB anchor Heather Unruh said Spacey got her son drunk and then sexually assaulted him at a popular restaurant off Cape Cod. Spacey's attorney Alan Jackson argued today the case should be dropped because of "misrepresentation," claiming evidence was erased. 

Jackson claimed Unruh erased "frat boy activities" from her underage son's phone before handing it over to authorities. 

The next hearing will be on July 8th, but Judge Thomas Barrett has promised he will rule on the defense's request for the accuser's and his mother's phones probably by the end of the week.
