Testimony Ends in Football Star Rape Trial

Posted: Updated:
The prosecution and defense laid out their case for jurors on Tuesday.

For about an hour the alleged victim told the jury how the former high school football star Deon Johnson forced her into a bathroom stall at Spirit Park in Spanish Fort and raped her.

She testified she asked, "Why are you dong this?" and "Please don't." She says she tried fighting him off but eventually gave in because there was nothing she could do.

The defense called only three witnesses but one, a former friend, testified the victim told her it didn't really happen but it was too late to change her story.

Johnson did not take the stand in his own defense.

Closing arguments are set for Wednesday morning.
