Cuba Gooding Jr. . has just been charged with another crime, even though Manhattan D.A. is super secret about the exact nature of the indictment and the alleged victim.
Cuba appeared in court Thursday – everyone thought it was for his sexual assault case – but apparently that was not the case. D.A. told the judge that there was a further incident that formed the basis of the new prosecution.
It is unclear whether the alleged victim is the same woman who made the first accusation against the actor. When Cuba was arrested, D.A. revealed that there was another incident the NYPD investigated, but it is unclear if this is the basis for the new indictment.
Cuba will be arranged for the new fee next week.
We broke the story … Cuba's team put forward a motion to dismiss the case in June claiming [prosecutor'sterm – from blog posts – to show that she has a "distorted mental state." This did not fit well with the DA's office, which urged Cuba to have used the alleged victim's mental health as an excuse to throw the case.
