The disgraced actor was arraigned on a charge of felony indecent assault and battery during a hearing at Nantucket District Court on Monday. He did not enter a plea. The judge set another hearing for March 4. Spacey does not have to appear.

Spacey has said he intends to plead not guilty. His lawyer has also questioned the evidence against him.

It's the first criminal case brought against the 59-year-old after a string of sexual misconduct allegations crippled his career in 2017.
