Cuba Gooding Jr. is now facing new charges in addition to the one he had before.
No details on the new charges, however, it was enough to push back his trial where he was charged for “groping a woman’s breasts in Manhattan” earlier this year.

According to NBC:
Gooding, 51, appeared in Manhattan Criminal Court on Thursday for what was supposed to be the start of his trial on the earlier charge related to the alleged incident on June 9. In that case, a woman claims she was at the Magic Hour Rooftop Bar and Lounge near Times Square when Gooding placed his hand on her breast and squeezed it without her consent.
The Manhattan District Attorney revealed that the charges “in an indictment against the Oscar-winning actor cover the event at the bar in June as well as a new, previously uncharged incident.”
The indictment is to be unsealed at Gooding's Oct. 15 arraignment.
