|Testimony Begins in Donkor-baine Trial
By Anne Jungen
October 26, 2010
A devout Catholic testified today that a priest sexually assaulted her inside a vehicle in mid-August.
"He grabbed my hand and put it on his penis, and then he took his hands and grabbed my breast," the woman said during the Rev. Edmund Donkor-Baine's trial. "He was erect."
The woman said she met with Donkor-Baine that August evening hoping for his advice on her failing marriage, including how to handle sexual urges.
Donkor-Baine denies the assault and testified that he refused the woman's sexual advances. He is charged with fourth-degree sexual assault in La Crosse County Circuit Court. His trial resumes at 1 p.m. today.
