British law enforcement authorities have filed seven new criminal charges against actor Kevin Spacey — including three counts of sexual assault — in connection with misconduct that allegedly occurred around 20 years ago.

The special crime division of the UK’s Crown Prosecution Services issued a statement Wednesday spelling out the charges against Spacey, which stemmed from accusations leveled by one victim between 2001 and 2004.

“The CPS has also authorised one charge of causing a person to engage in sexual activity without consent,” Rosemary Ainslie, head of the CPS Special Crime Division, said in the statement.

Spacey is due to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court in London on December 16.

In July, Spacey pleaded not guilty in a London court to four charges of sexual assault and one count of causing a person to engage in penetrative sexual activity without consent. A trial was set for next year.

Last month, a New York jury found him not liable for battery on allegations he picked up actor Anthony Rapp and laid on top of him after a party in 1986.

Spacey has won two Academy Awards for his roles in “The Usual Suspects” and “American Beauty,” and was artistic director of London’s Old Vic theater from 2003 to 2015.
