Antonio Perez Testifies In 89th District Court Today

 

The jury in the Antonio Perez trial began deliberating a verdict this afternoon. 

Perez is charged with the sexual assaults and molestation of two young girls here, but during the past couple of days, his two sisters also testified Perez abused them many years ago when they lived in Mexico.

This morning Perez caused some confusion in the 89th district courtroom, when he first said he would not take the stand in his defense, then changed his mind after both sides had already rested and against his attorney's advice.

On the stand, Perez denied all the allegations by the two girls, and his sisters adding the two girls he is on trial for assaulting are liars.

In his closing statement his lawyer Bob Estrada told jurors there is no real proof the assault happened, and it amounted to a "he said, she said case".

Prosecutor Brett Benedict said it was actually he said, she said, she said, she said and she said the case, with four victims giving detailed accounts of the assaults.

Estrada said the state did not prove Perez was guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

But Benedict asked jurors to remember what the witnesses said happened, which included incest, sodomy, rape and oral sex.
