CUBA FEELING CONFIDENT HEADING INTO CASE (DETAILS HERE)
Cuba Gooding Jr. just arrived to a Manhattan courthouse for a hearing in his groping case … and the actor is trying to convince the D.A. to drop the charges against him.
The hearing is over, it only went about 20 minutes, and Cuba’s attorneys did not get a ruling on their motion to dismiss. The judge said she would not make any “rash decisions,” and certainly not before prosecutors have a chance to respond on July 17.
Judge Keshia Espinal added she would rule on the motion to dismiss on August 14.
Prosecutors filed a deposition from the accuser in which she details her account of the alleged groping.
The Oscar winner’s attorneys, Mark Heller and Peter Toumbekis, say their client is innocent and have filed a motion to dismiss the charges. The judge is expected to address that motion Wednesday in court.
