Cuba Gooding Jr. had to face a Manhattan judge today in an effort to dismiss a groping case brought against him after a woman alleged the Oscar-winning actor touched her breast at a New York City bar.
The actor has maintained his innocent in the ordeal and has even brought into question the accusers sanity after blog posts from the woman surface where she talks about suffering from several mental disabilities.
Surveillance video has surfaced that proves the actor did touch the accuser’s leg and kissed her hand but fails to show the actor groping her breast as claimed.
Unfortunately for the Men of Honor actor, Judge Keshia Espinal declared she won’t make any ‘rash decisions‘ and did not dismiss the charges until prosecutors have time to look over the evidence on the next hearing on July 17.
Cuba remains defiant and appeared cheerful while he talked to reporters about the ‘beautiful weather’ and said ‘life is good’ after someone pointed out that he still remains in good spirits.
He was asked again if he still trusts the system, which he enthusiastically responded, “I do!”.
