    Cuba Gooding Jr. faces new charge in NYC sex misconduct case

    "NEW YORK (AP) — Cuba Gooding Jr. learned on Thursday that he’s facing a new undisclosed charge in his sexual misconduct case, a development that came as jury selection was set to begin for his trial . . .
    The actor has been accused of placing his hand on a 29-year-old woman’s breast and squeezing it without her consent at Magic Hour Rooftop Bar & Lounge near Times Square on June 9. The woman told police she believed Gooding was intoxicated.
    Gooding was arrested four days later after turning himself in to police. He pleaded not guilty to forcible touching and sexual abuse charges and was released on his own recognizance.
    Gooding later requested to have his case thrown out, but he was rejected.
    The defense had filed papers saying the misdemeanor forcible touching case should be dismissed based on accounts of two witnesses who say it never happened, and that video from the bar backs up that claim. The papers argued that since there was clear evidence that no crime was committed, it was necessary to throw out the case to protect the integrity of the criminal justice system. Gooding faces up to a year in jail if convicted . . . "

    It's a dark century afoot for the USA and these runaway courts hell bent on prosecuting the innocent and freeing the guilty!

    The trust is rust or dust!

    Justice is fast becoming "self-serve"...

    This illustrates how fucked up New York has become. However, I can see something like this happening here, too.
    And this new charge is undisclosed? Whatever happened to the right to face your accuser?

    My guess is the local criminal defense lawyers know this guy, unlike most other NYers, has a deep wallet. This fish must pay to escape NY! Bonfire of the Vanities, the sexual harassment version!

    Unfortunately he has to keep fighting ($$$) because the alternative is way, way worse.
