Cuba Gooding Jr. to Be Arraigned in NYC on New Charge

Cuba Gooding Jr. is expected to appear in court on Tuesday to face a new undisclosed charge in his sexual misconduct case. Prosecutors revealed last week that the charge is contained in a new indictment against the Oscar-winning "Jerry Maguire" star's case. Gooding then appeared at a Manhattan court for possible jury selection for his trial. He now must be arraigned on the new indictment Tuesday before a trial can begin. The actor is accused of placing his hand on a 29-year-old woman's breast and squeezing it without her consent at Magic Hour Rooftop Bar & Lounge near Times Square on June 9. The woman told police she believed Gooding was intoxicated.

Democrats Gear Up for Fourth Presidential Debate

Just a month has passed since the last presidential debate, but the state of the Democrats' 2020 race has shifted.

The evolving storylines will play out on national television Tuesday night in battleground Ohio, where the largest debate group in modern history — 12 candidates — will share the stage less than four months before the first 2020 primary votes are cast.
