According to Fox News, an unidentified young man who alleges that Kevin Spacey groped him repeatedly in a bar several years ago revealed to the court several text messages between him and his girlfriend on the night the alleged incident took place. Throughout the exchange, the accuser explicitly tells his girlfriend that Spacey grabbed his private area multiple times. Transcript below:

Spacey's defense team has disputed the authenticity of the text messages, alleging that the accuser deleted certain portions of the conversation to make it appear one-sided.
"Spacey’s defense wants the accuser’s iPhone, contending that portions of the text exchange were deleted to create a one-sided version of events on the night in question," reports Fox News. "The defense has sought to conduct a forensic extraction of data and claimed the entire exchange would clear Spacey of charges. They said it would show the interactions between the actor and the then-18-year-old accuser were nothing more than consensual flirting."
The young man's attorney, Mitchell Garabedian, told the court that his client's cellphone used that night could not be found. The judge has now ordered his phone be turned over to the defense team by July 8.
Though Kevin Spacey has been hit with multiple accusations of sexual harassment and assault, this particular case is the only criminal charge against him at this time. The "House of Cards" actor has denied all the charges against him and has maintained his innocence.
