Day Two of Historic Sexual Assault Trial in Lethbridge

 
 

LETHBRIDGE: The second day of the trial for a 53-year old former Taber resident, brought tears from an alleged victim who took the stand.

 

The man who is now 21, stated that his step-father sexually assaulted him on numerous occassions and took naked pictures of him starting at the age of six.

 

During cross examination from the defence, the man acknowledged that he had been told that his biological father was abusive. He explained that he couldn't remember it as he was only about a year old. He then completely broke down when the defence suggested that the accused had tried to help him deal with the physical abuse from his biological father by trying to talk about it.

 

Monday the man's older brother testified that he had also been sexually assaulted by their step-father starting at an early age.

 

Both stated that their mother married the accused, noting that initially they really liked him.

 

The name of the accused is being withheld to protect the identity of the victims.

 

The case runs until Thursday.
