DETAIL OF INCIDENCE:

Cuba Mark Gooding Jr.is an American actor. He is the recipient of an academy award a Screen Actors Guild Award and an Emmy nomination. Gooding’s first job as an entertainer was as a breakdancer, performing with the singer at the closing ceremonies in Los Angeles.. pleaded guilty to one count of forcibly touching a woman at a New York City rooftop bar back in 2018, three years after being arrested and accused by multiple women of sexual misconduct. In the Oscar winner’s guilty plea, Gooding, 54, admitted that he “kissed the waitress on her lips” inside the LAVO New York restaurant and nightclub without consent.

The plea deal, made Wednesday, is for no jail time, according to the Associated Press and The New York Times. Additionally, provided he attends six months of counseling, he can instead plead guilty to harassment at a lower level than a misdemeanor.”I apologize for ever making anybody feel inappropriately touched,” Gooding told the courtroom, per the Times.

 

Back in June 2019, Gooding turned himself into the New York Police Department following allegations that he groped a woman at a rooftop bar in Manhattan. The woman said Gooding was “highly intoxicated” at the time of the incident and groped her breasts at the Magic Hour Rooftop Bar and Lounge in Manhattan. Two more accusations came out months later, one of which is the one he pleaded guilty to. If the long-delayed case went to trial, prosecutors were planning to call 19 witnesses with similar accusations against Gooding to show a pattern of the alleged behavior, the AP reported.

 

Separately, in 2020, Gooding was accused of raping a woman twice in 2013 inside his New York City hotel room. He has denied the claims and the case is ongoing. In January, Gooding’s 25-year-old son Mason Gooding, who stars on Hulu’s Love, Victor and in the recent Scream film, addressed the allegations made about his dad, telling The Hollywood Reporter, “I couldn’t be more grateful to live in a time in which someone — man, woman, anyone — would feel comfortable speaking about their experiences. I also love my father and given who he is and how he raised me, I’m happy to say, nothing I’ve read, heard, or had discussed with me has been in line with any way I’ve known him to behave.”
