11 a.m.

Cuba Gooding Jr. is facing a new undisclosed charge in his sexual misconduct case.

Prosecutors revealed on Thursday that the charge is contained in a new indictment against the Oscar-winning "Jerry Maguire" star's case.

Gooding appeared Thursday at a Manhattan court for possible jury selection for his trial. He now must be arraigned on the new indictment next week before a trial can begin.

The actor left court without speaking to reporters. The defense says video supports witnesses who say it never happened.

Cuba Gooding Jr.'s New York trial on groping charges is set to begin.

The trial, which is scheduled to start Thursday, was postponed in September after prosecutors said they were still waiting for evidence in the Oscar-winning "Jerry Maguire" star's case. Gooding's lawyers argued against the delay.

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.

The 51-year-old Gooding was arrested four days later after turning himself in to police.

He's pleaded not guilty to forcible touching and sexual abuse charges and is free on his own recognizance. He faces up to a year in jail if convicted.
