The Oscar-winning actor is accused of allegedly pinching one woman's buttocks, squeezing the breast of another, and forcibly touching a woman inappropriately. He was arrested in June 2019 after a 29-year-old woman told police officers that Gooding groped her without her consent at Magic Hour Rooftop Bar & Lounge near Times Square. He was charged with the other incidents soon after. 

Gooding's trial was originally scheduled for April 2020 but was postponed after cases of the coronavirus surged in New York, eventually shutting the state down. 

He has pleaded not guilty and denies all allegations
