Spacey is charged with an obscene assault and a battery for allegedly touching an 18-year-old bus in July 2016 at the Club Car Club Restaurant and Club on the island of Nantucket.
One Nazette, Massachusetts, a judge ordered the phone to be turned over, so defense experts can look at it. The police reported that the device was returned to the accuser's father, but as CNN reported on Wednesday, the accuser, his family and their attorney say they can not remember receiving the phone and can not find it.
Screenshots seem to start in the middle of the conversation when he wrote the accuser, "as he was hanging around me at the bar, he got my number and asked me to come out with him."
In the course of the exchange, the accuser states that Spacey has touched his multiple genitals many times. "He pulled my zipper down," sent her girlfriend's accuser, adding later, "Jesus Christ, get to my pants."
The accuser repeatedly asks for help during the conversation and at one point tells his girlfriend to "check out" Snapchat, probably a social networking application.
In one of the texts stamped by the stock exchange, the accuser writes, "I got the autographs and the hell of a story …"
Spacey's lawyer claims that the text messages are incomplete and justifiable
"To be sure , the screenshots of the text messages exchanged between (the girlfriend of the accuser) and the (accuser) during the night in question are incomplete, "says lawyer Alan Jackson in the simultaneous submission. "There seems to be time intervals between these texts."
Jackson claims that the acquittal evidence was removed from the accuser's phone before being handed over to the prosecutors.
"British community-created screenings suggest that the additional messages on the prosecutor's cell phone will reveal the truth: (the accuser) has invented an exaggerated element of history to impress his friends," he said. told Judge Thomas Barrett last month that they had received a copy of the phone data and then returned the device.
Defense attorneys have received a CD containing files from the phone, but Spacey's law firm said the files were inadequate.
"Access to core databases is necessary to conduct a proper analysis, including whether messages may have been erased or attempted to recover deleted data," defense expert Sankara Shanugam wrote in a statement on a statement. they should have the right to try to recover deleted data from the phone, which are now missing.
Judge Barrett extended the deadline for returning the phone by July 8. If the phone was not found by then, the accuser, his mother, and the attorney must appear in court to testify about his whereabouts.
Neither Jackson, nor the prosecutors, nor the prosecutor's lawyer immediately responded to the requests for comment.
