Kevin Spacey is likely the highest profile celebrity to face allegations as part of the #MeToo movement.
On Monday, the Oscar-winning actor appeared in a Massachusetts courtroom where he pled not guilty to sexually assaulting a teenager in the summer of 2016.
Spacey’s next court appearance in the case is scheduled for March 4, which the judge said the actor does not have to attend. He is, however, supposed to be reach able by phone.

After being charged in December, Spacey’s lawyers had asked the judge to dismiss the actor from having to appear in court. However, the judge denied that movement.
If convicted, the award-winning actor faces up to five years in prison.
