Resendez’s defense tries to highlight inconsistencies in witness testimony; jurors learn about previous conviction.

An attorney representing a man on trial for indecency with a child, spent most of Thursday trying to poke holes in witness testimony.


Thirty-nine-year-old Reynaldo Resendez Jr. is accused of climbing into bed with his former girlfriend’s 15-year-old daughter and molesting her in the early morning hours of Dec. 24, 2021.


Resendez’s attorney Audie Reese began his defense by calling Wednesday’s witnesses back to the stand.


He spent hours highlighting various minor inconsistencies he found in witness testimony, and after the now 17-year-old victim was cross-examined, she could be heard sobbing as she left the courtroom.


Jurors also learned that when Resendez was 19, he was convicted of indecency with a child in a separate case and spent two years in prison, but his attorney called it “a completely different situation.”


The prosecution and defense have rested their cases and the jury will begin deliberations on Friday morning.

Resendez declined to take the stand in his own defense.
