He is due back in court on December 13, and was previously charged with grabbing a woman’s breast at the Magic Hour Rooftop Bar on June 9. He was indicted by a grand jury on two charges in connection the incident, plus two charges related to a second incident after allegedly pinching a woman’s butt at TAO nightclub in 2018.
Prosecutors reportedly intend to call another 12 women to testify in support of the charges.
