Jury Deliberations in Teacher Sex Trial
The jury has been let go for the night. They will start back up at 9a.m. on Friday.
CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- The jury in the case of a former Colerain teacher is deliberating Thursday afternoon. They'll decide if they believe Julie Hautzenroeder had sex with two 16-year-old students. She's also accused of smoking marijuana with them.
Both sides gave their closing arguments today. Prosecutors told the jury that when they consider the text messages, the testimony of the boys and the testimony of Hautzenroeder's own friend about that night, the only verdict is guilty.
The defense asked jurors to weigh the evidence, and asked if they'd be willing to rely on it. He suggested they would not and would find her not guilty.
