Cuba Gooding Jr. has been indicted by a grand jury on new charges

first_imgiStock/Pattanaphong Khuankaew(NEW YORK CITY) — Cuba Gooding, Jr. was indicted on new charges by a grand jury in New York City court today.The latest charges will remain sealed until Tuesday, October 15, when Gooding returns to court.The actor previously pleaded not guilty to one misdemeanor count each of forcible touching and sexual abuse in the third degree. The charges stem from the 51-year-old actor’s alleged groping of a woman’s breast inside Manhattan’s Magic Hour Rooftop Bar on June 9.Attorneys for the Oscar-winning Jerry Maguire star had previously sought to dismiss the case, arguing that a video of his encounter with the woman in question shows that he didn’t grope her.The judge declined to dismiss the case.The complaint itself asserts that Gooding, “forcibly touched the sexual and other intimate parts of another person for the purpose of degrading and abusing such person, and for the purpose of gratifying the defendant’s sexual desire; the defendant subjected another person to sexual contact without the latter’s consent.”Gooding has denied the claim.  Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.

We’re anticipating 30,000 people placed in shelters temporarily to basically stabilize the situation and provide for their care.”Texas asked for a presidential disaster declaration, according to National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration director Louis Uccellini, which President Trump enacted to help mobilize all resources to help when the state’s resources are depleted.“Underneath the president’s disaster declaration, we have turned on what we call individual assistant programs,” Uccellini said. “We are expecting, based on this event, over 450,000 potential registers of disaster victims. That is a huge number but we are ready to go, process. We’ve already processed nearly 15,000 calls over the last 24 hours.”Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.
