A 17 year veteran of law enforcement, Tim Gavin is on trial for sexually abusing a child under the age of 12 and possession of child pornography.
He took the stand in his own defense Tuesday. He was the last witness to testify and the only witness for the defense. Much of his testimony was denying any wrongdoing. Instead, he says an alleged victim in the case made up stories because she was mad at him for yelling at her.
He did admit to showing children pornographic material and inappropriately touching some of the victims. But when the prosecutor asked why he would do something like that, he would respond “I don’t know.”
The jury will hear closing arguments Tuesday morning and could begin deliberations before noon.
