The next hearing is set for March, and Spacey doesn't have to be there

Kevin Spacey's arraignment just wrapped up in a Nantucket courtroom.

The judge gave the same warning to Spacey that he gave to many other accused this morning: If you are charged with another crime while this matter is open, you can be held for 90 days without bail.

The judge also ordered Spacey to have no contact with the accuser. 

Spacey held what looked like a glasses case in his hand and he played with it from time to time, tapping it with his hands.

What comes next: The next hearing will be on March 4 at 11 a.m E.T. The judge agreed to waive Spacey’s right to appear, but he must be reachable by phone.

When called forward with his lawyers, he stood with his hands folded in front of him, looking at the judge. 

Spacey nodded slightly when he was ordered to have no contact with the victim.
