Fifth accuser comes out with sexual misconduct allegations against Cuba Gooding Jr.
Actor Cuba Gooding Jr. faces new allegations of sexual misconduct after a fifth accuser came forward earlier this week.
According to TMZ, the incident in question occurred back in October 2018. Gooding’s lawyer says his client intends to plead not guilty, and further alleges that the woman only came forward after seeing he’d already been arrested.
Police are also investigating three other alleged incidents, from 2008, 2013, and 2015 respectively, but no charges have been filed.
TMZ also reports that Gooding sought to have the case dismissed completely on the suggestion that his accuser was in a “warped mental state,” for which he was reprimanded and his request shot down.
Gooding is expected to face a new charge in relation to this latest accusation.
