The #MeToo movement is hitting the entertainment industry where it hurts. Actor Cuba Gooding Jr was already facing one accusation of sexual abuse which allegedly took place in June 2019.

Now a Grand Jury has indicted actor Gooding on 4 counts of forcible touching and one count of sexual abuse in the third degree for a new victim, and he's facing the same 2 charges from the original accuser.

The 12 women's accusations are similar in tone and content

CUBA GOODING JR: "NOT GUILTY"

Gooding handed himself in to the Police for the second time on the renewed and augmented charges.

His attorney Mark Heller, has denied the 12 new allegations of sexual misconduct which have surfaced in the aftermath of the charges and revealed that Gooding is innocent. He said:

"Cuba denies all of these allegations. This is a typical scenario in which random people come out of the woodwork to accuse a celebrity who has already been charged. They have no credibility because Cuba was not charged with any of those allegations."
