When his own lawyer, Robert Haar, says the former state representative was naked in the 14-year-old girl's room "but he didn't touch her," and that's his defense, things are not looking good for the Frontenac Republican.
According to Tony Messenger's account in the St. Louis Post Dispatch:
“It was a normal evening,” Gandhi told the jury. The victim was asleep in her mom’s house after having been at a friend’s house watching movies. “The next time she opened her eyes, … the light from the hallway was shining in the bedroom on her face … her hand was outside of the covers … she didn’t know what was going on. Her hand was moving. She looked over, and she saw, clearly, her hand, on a man’s penis. She felt it in her hand. She could clearly see a tall man, a fair-skinned man, squatting down over the bed, using his hand, to move her hand, up and down on his penis. … She was petrified.”
Testimony is continuing.
