    Actor Cuba Gooding Jr. departs his court arraignment in New York on Oct. 15, 2019, where new charges were to be unsealed in his sexual assault case.

    Cuba Gooding Jr. faces new charges in his sexual misconduct case.

    The actor's lawyer says he's due in a New York City court on Thursday for arraignment on an updated misdemeanor indictment.

    Lawyer Mark Heller says the charges involve a new accuser. An indictment unsealed this month already charges Gooding in two alleged events.

    Gooding pleaded not guilty Oct. 15 to charges alleging he pinched a woman's buttocks in October 2018 and squeezed a woman's breast in June at Manhattan bars.

    Prosecutors have said they intend to have up to a dozen other women not associated with the criminal charges testify that Gooding behaved similarly with them over the years.

    The 51-year-old "Jerry Maguire" star has denied all allegations of wrongdoing. Heller says the case is a symptom of the #MeToo movement run amok.
