Harold Wright Jr. finished testifying on his own behalf Thursday in his second-degree rape trial.
His co-defendant, Richy Carter, took the stand just before lunch and still was under cross-examination when court recessed Thursday afternoon.
The trial is on hiatus next week and will resume July 9. I think Judge Lisa Worswick isn’t available next week.
Carter is expected to be the last defense witness.
Prosecutors say they may call two rebuttal witnesses – one of them likely to contradict Wright’s testimony Wednesday that he didn’t smoke pot the morning of the alleged rape – before the trial goes to closing arguments.
Check the home page later tonight or tomorrow morning for a story on Thursday’s testimony.
Tomorrow, I’ll try to get together a post that strings all my reports together to give a more complete picture of what’s go on so far.
