Cuba Gooding Jr. receives expungement after shoving woman

Academy Award winning actor Cuba Gooding Jr. has had warrant for his arrest expunged from his record.

The Radio star got into a heated argument at New Orleans’ The Old Absinthe House when patrons began taking pictures of him. The bartender asked him to leave. He shoved her and called her a racist outside.

Police issued a warrant for his arrest last Tuesday, but the bartender chose not to press charges. Gooding Jr.’s expungement has already been signed by the court, wiping this incidence off of his record permanently.

Former Dallas Cowboy to speak to rookies regarding off-field conduct

Former Dallas Cowboy Adam “Pacman” Jones will speak to the league’s incoming rookies this month concerning their off-the-field conduct.

Jones’ career has been plagued with trouble arising from his behavior outside of work. He missed an entire season dealing with the backlash of his involvement in a strip club shooting that left a person paralyzed. Jones was also suspended for six games right before being traded to the Cowboys in 2008 for an alcohol-induced altercation with a bodyguard. Last year, he had a misdemeanor charge of resisting arrest dismissed, making it eligible for expungement.

He hopes he can teach the incoming rookie class to not make the same mistakes he has made.

Even you have had your criminal charges dismissed or have been found not guilty of a crime, the accusations may still be on your record. However, you may be able to have them expunged. Contact the expungement lawyers of the Law Offices of Mark T. Lassiter at 214-845-7007 to learn more.
