Cuba Gooding Jr. pleads not guilty to sex misconduct claims
NEW YORK (AP) — Cuba Gooding Jr. has pleaded not guilty to an indictment alleging two instances of sexual misconduct. Gooding appeared Tuesday before a judge in New York City and was released on his own recognizance. The new charge involves an alleged incident in October 2018. The defense paints it as a shakedown attempt. The 51-year-old "Jerry Maguire" star was previously accused of groping a woman's breast at a bar on June 9. The woman told police she believed Gooding was intoxicated.The defense has said there are two witnesses who say it never happened and a bar video that backs up that claim.
Police said Spence left the crash before they arrived, but was eventually arrested and taken to the hospital for injuries.
Fox, 73, lived in Virginia Beach for 48 years where she would pray for others under the 'Blessing Tree' in her yard.
She was at her daughter's house on the night she was hit and killed. The family asked her to spend the night, but she refused.
"They asked her to stay to spend the night and she was like no, no, no. I want to go home and she was very stubborn about that," Sherry Mclachlan, Fox's daughter, said. "She was so healthy, she had no health issues. It's just not fair."
Spence isn't scheduled to be sentenced until January 29, 2020.
"I will forgive him, but he can't get away with doing this," Maclachlan said.
Now, he won't.
Norfolk man who claimed innocence for decades-old Virginia Beach robbery pleads guilty .
A Norfolk man pleaded guilty for a November 1999 Virginia Beach robbery a year after claiming his innocence. This all starts in November 1999 when a man robbed a cashier and shot them in the shoulder behind the Asia Grocery store off of Virginia Beach Boulevard. The robber got away with two dollars but left behind bullet casings and a ski mask. An employee, Dat Loung, was taking trash out at a business in the 5400 block of Virginia Beach Boulevard in Virginia Beach around 7 p.m. on November 29, 1999. Court documents say Lee stood near the trash cans and said, "Boo!" to Loung. He ignored Lee and went back into the store to get more trash.
