Cuba Gooding Jr. Pleads Not Guilty to "Forcible Touching"

Updated: Jun 19, 2019

51 year old Gooding smiled and waved as he turned himself in on Thursday to the New York special victims division.

He has pleaded not guilty to charges of forcible touching. A 29 year old woman claims while Gooding was intoxicated he grabbed her breast at around 11:15 p.m. at the Magic Hour Rooftop Bar & Lounge in Manhattan. Gooding has denied all charges and his lawyer, Mark Heller, is confident that Cuba Gooding Jr. will be exonerated by video footage from Magic Hour Rooftop Bar & Lounge.

Heller tells reporters that the 29 year old alleged victim was seen on video following Gooding around and was even told to leave Gooding alone at one point. "That individual must have been unhappy about being rebuffed, and apparently went and made this false complaint," Heller said.

Heller also tells reporters, "In my 50 years, almost, of practicing law, I have never seen a case like this one because there is not a scintilla of criminal culpability that can be attributed to Mr. Cuba Gooding Jr. after I have extensively, with my staff, reviewed the video of almost two hours which reflects the entire event for which we are here today,"

Gooding says 'I will trust the system'...
