ALLEGED VICTIM TESTIFIES IN UNION COUNTY CHILD RAPE TRAIL

(Liberty, IN)--The prosecution in the Steve Davisson child rape trial in Union County was expected to wrap up its case Thursday morning.  On Wednesday, the alleged victim testified in graphic detail about how the 58-year-old Davisson’s attention toward her increased until he raped her last year.  A youth pastor testified that he noticed changes in the 14-year-old girl’s behavior during the time of the abuse.  And, a state police investigator testified that Davisson admitted to touching the girl but denied raping her.  The defense will present its side when the prosecution rests.
