UPDATE: Jury Deliberating In Greg Kelley Trial

Updated: Tuesday, July 15 2014, 03:58 PM CDT

Tues. 12 p.m. UPDATE: The jury has now begun deliberations in the trial.

----------------------------------------

ORIGINAL STORY:

On Tuesday both sides get their last minutes in front of the jury in the Greg Kelley trial. On Monday, the former Leander High School football star took the stand, denying the charges of sexually assaulting two young boys at a Cedar Park in-home daycare.

Once closing arguments wrap up, the jury will consider three charges. This comes after the judge dismissed a fourth charge, indecency with a child by contact, on Monday, because the child testified Kelley never touched him. If convicted on the most serious charges, Kelley faces a minimum of 25 years in prison.

While on the stand Monday, Kelley appeared very calm and polite. He said he does not recall ever being alone in the same room with either of the two alleged victims. One of the boys testified earlier in the trial that he was asleep in Kelley's room one time the alleged sexual abuse took place, but Kelley called the child's testimony "untruthful". He said there were a couple of times he was home when kids were napping, and one time he opened the door to see a child sleeping in his bed, but he said he was never alone with the children and only had contact with them in common areas with adults around.

"First thing I did was I closed (the door) and I asked Shama (day care owner) if you could please move him," said Kelley on the stand Monday. "I need to get my football stuff so I can go to the gym and go work out. That's exactly what she did."

Prosecutors did attack Kelley's character and credibility by calling the owner of his gym to the stand, who claimed Kelley told him several times he was in the Marines, which isn't true.
