Raymond Slagle Trial: Day 4

Day four of the Raymond Ray Slagle trial continued Friday at the Wichita County Courthouse.  

Slagle is accused of sexually assaulted two children over a five year span. He pled not guilty to three counts of aggravated sexual assault and two counts of child indecency.

Two of the prosecution’s witnesses took the stand Friday.

The first witness was one of the victim’s longtime childhood friends. The witness said they went to school together. 

When prosecutors asked the witness when the victim told her about the alleged abuse, the witness said it was when they were in grade school.

The witness told prosecutors the victim cried when telling her about the alleged abuse and then gave her a note describing what happened.

The witness said in the note the victim said the perpetrator "wouldn't stop when she said no."

The alleged victim told the witness it would take place when another adult would be asleep. The witness said the victim told her to never tell anyone. 

The witness said the victim said it all began when the victim was around seven years old.

Jennifer Edwards, a Sexual Abuse Provider, who has conducted over 4,000 interviews about sexual abuse cases, was the prosecution’s final witness on Friday.

Edwards has no affiliation to Slagle’s case, but talked about a number of scenarios and sexual abuse incidents.

When asked about sexual abuse tendencies, she said 93 to 97 percent of victims know their perpetrators.

She also said the events often happen in places the perpetrator is most comfortable such as the their home, vehicles, etc.

Edwards is one of nine witnesses that have taken the stand in this case.

Court recessed just after 3 p.m. Friday afternoon.  Judge said court will resume on Monday at the Wichita County Courthouse at 9 a.m. in 30th District court. He expects the state to rest its case mid Monday morning and deliberations to begin on Tuesday.
