Heather Unruh is used to being on television. The former anchor spent years delivering the local news for Boson's WCVB-TV. Now, she's become part of it. During an emotional news conference with attorney Mitchell Garabedian Wednesday, Unruh alleges that Kevin Spacey, the once-revered actor whose turn as predatory politician Francis Underwood on Netflix's House of Cards netted him numerous accolades, sexually assaulted her son.
The incident happened in July of 2016 when Unruh's son was at the Club Car restaurant in Nantucket.Her son was eighteen at the time, although he told Spacey otherwise. The actor then plied him with several drinks until he thoroughly inebriated. "My son was not of legal age to drink alcohol," Unruh said. "He told Kevin Spacey that he was of legal age. But whether he was over 21 or not, Kevin Spacey has no right to sexually assault him. There was no consent."
Once her son was drunk, Unruh said, Spacey made his move.

"Spacey stuck his hand inside my son’s pants and grabbed his genitals," she described. "This was completely unexpected. My son’s efforts to shift his body to remove Spacey’s hands were only momentarily successful."
Her son only managed to escape once Spacey went to the bathroom.

Unruh's story is only one in a series of revelations that show a pattern of behavior for the Oscar winner.He has been accused of assaulting numerous young men, both straight and gay, some of whom were young as 14 years old. Spacey was first accused by Star Trek: Discovery actor Anthony Rapp, who alleges Spacey drunkenly climbed on top of him when he was 14.
Spacey released a statement of apology in response to Rapp's allegation, saying. "I honestly do not remember the encounter, it would have been over 30 years ago."
