Actor Cuba Gooding Jr, who is facing a criminal case over accusations that he touched a woman’s breasts in a bar and pinched another’s buttocks in a nightclub, has been charged in connection with a third woman, his lawyer said on Wednesday.
Gooding is expected to appear in court Thursday and plead not guilty to the charges, according to his lawyer, Mark Heller.

The charges are not yet public, and a spokeswoman for Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance declined to provide details.
Heller said the charges stemming from the third accuser were “similar” to those involving the other two women, and that all are misdemeanors.
