Cuba Gooding pleaded guilty to sexual assault!

Well-known actor Cuba Gooding pleaded guilty to one count of sexual assault. His guilty plea came almost three years after Cuba's arrest. So far, the case has been postponed several times, and his lawyers have repeatedly asked for the charges against him to be reduced or dropped.

Cuba Gooding Jr. pleaded guilty on Wednesday to sexually harassing a woman at a New York nightclub in 2018 as part of an agreement reached with prosecutors that would spare the Oscar-winning actor immediate prison sentences.

A guilty plea, with which Gooding admitted to the court that in 2018 and 2019 he "made physical contact without consent with two other women" in nightclubs in Manhattan, was three years after the actor's arrest, according to a statement from the Manhattan District Attorney's Office. If 54-year-old Gooding continues regular therapeutic interviews over the next six months on court instructions, he will be able to withdraw his misdemeanor statement and be able to plead guilty to a minor harassment violation, according to the plea agreement.

Failure to comply with him carries a prison sentence of up to one year. The famous actor has been charged with sexual assault on three women at various nightclubs in Manhattan during 2018 and 2019. He also pleaded guilty to the most serious count of the indictment, which charges him with kissing a woman in a Manhattan nightclub without consent in September 2018, a spokesman for the district attorney said.

"I apologize for making any person feel that I have touched them inappropriately," Gooding told the court in a guilty plea, the New York Times reported.

Hours after Gooding pleaded guilty, Manhattan federal court judge Paul Crotty rejected Gooding's attorney's offer to dismiss a $ 6 million civil lawsuit. The lawsuit was filed by a woman who claims Gooding raped her twice in 2013 at the Mercer Hotel in the SoHo neighborhood of Manhattan. The actor's lawyer vehemently denies the allegations.
