Transcript for New audio recordings shed light on possible Kevin Spacey defense strategy
criminal case against Kevin spacey. A new recording obtained by ABC news is shedding light on his possible defense strategy. ABC's janai Norman joins us now. Janai, what are we learning? Reporter: This audio record something from a show cause hearing and hear his defense lawyers trying to chip away at the accuser's story including the fact the accuser didn't report what was happened right away and wasn't interviewed for more than a year. In these newly obtained audio recordings, Kevin spacey's lawyers pressing witnesses in court about the allegations of sexual assault against spacey made by a then 18-year-old restaurant worker. You asked Mr. -- If he walked away. He indicated he did not walk away. That's correct. The audio was a recording of his defense attorneys outlining some of their strategy for how they plan to defend him. Reporter: The 59-year-old bought him multiple drinks at the bar. Investigators report showing one person noticed the teen at one point turn pale, blank, a bit frightened. Now spacey's defense attorney is heard pointing out what he says are inconsistencies in the alleged victim's story such as the clothing he wore and even lying about his age. He indicated that he was 23 years old, correct? That's correct. Was that correct or an incorrect or a false statement. That was an incorrect statement. Reporter: Questions about the Snapchat video which the accuser claims captures spacey groping him. What the video shows is a person's hand make contact with the shirt, correct? Yes. Okay. Not the -- any body part. Correct, you don't see any body parts. The video is very brief. Only about a second long. And the defense attorneys described it as showing someone's hand touching a person's shirt but not touching them in any way that was inappropriate. Reporter: The two-time Oscar winner is due in court to be arraigned on charges of indecent assault and battery coming on the heels of spacey a Twitter video channeling his former "House of cards" character in what seems to be a thinly veiled defense. I'm certainly not going to pay the price for the things I didn't do. Reporter: We still haven't heart directly from spacey horror his lawyers regarding that bizarre video. He's facing additional investigations of sexual misconduct in London and faces allegations from more than 30 accusers so it doesn't look like it will be over any time soon. Still talking about that monologue and what it meant. It was head scratching. That is probably the best way to describe it. Thank you very much.
