Cuba Gooding Jr Pleads Guilty In Sexual Abuse Case

Cuba Gooding Jr has pleaded guilty in his sexual abuse case.

The 54-year-old “Jerry Maguire” actor — who faced six counts of sexual abuse and forcible touching — copped to a misdemeanor forcible touching charge in Manhattan Criminal Court for non-consensually kissing a woman at a nightclub in 2018, according to prosecutors.

The plea deal, which allows the star to keep working, requires him to continue treatment for alcohol abuse, according to the Manhattan District Attorney’s office.  If he complies with the terms of the deal, the charge will be reduced to a non-criminal violation in six months.

Gooding had faced up to a year behind bars for groping three women at Manhattan hotspots in 2018 and 2019.

A 29-year-old woman told police that Gooding squeezed her breast without her consent at the Magic Hour Rooftop Bar & Lounge near Times Square. After that incident, two more women came forward with accusations of inappropriate touching. One woman, who was a server at TAO Downtown, alleged that Gooding pinched her buttocks at the nightclub in 2018. Another woman claimed that Gooding forcibly touched her inappropriately at the LAVO New York nightclub in 2018.

The actor is scheduled to appear in court again on Oct. 13.
