Actor #CubaGoodingJr is now facing multiple charges in a New York City groping case he was allegedly apart of over the summer.
#CNN reports that Cuba was hit with a new charge on Thursday as he appeared at a court hearing. Sources have stated that he was scheduled to began trial but was immediately informed of a newly uncharged incident. The Manhattan district attorney’s office has been extremely tight lipped with the new charge issued; stating that there has been no indication of if the new charge is related to the same accuser or not.
Gooding was previously charged with with two misdemeanors: forcible touching and sex abuse in the third degree, related to alleged groping. The incident in question took place in June at the Magic Hour Rooftop Bar & Lounge in Manhattan. Reports read a 29 year old unnamed woman accused Gooding of grabbing her breast. Gooding has pleaded not guilty to all charges forwarded. His attorney has viewed the forwarded surveillance footage of that night and state there is no incriminating evidence on his clients behalf.
Gooding is set to reappear in court October. 15 for a Supreme Court arraignment. New charges will be made public by then.
