Accuser Starts Cross Examination in Conaway Trial

Posted: Updated:

GEORGETOWN, Del. - The third day in the State Vs. Clay Conaway trial began Wednesday with the testimony from the woman accusing the former University of Delaware pitcher of first-degree rape. Later in the day, cross-examination began. 

The accuser explained to the jury the timeline of events that led up to her alleged rape. While on the stand, the accuser described the night of the incident saying she messaged him before and told him "I was not intending in have sex that day."

Defense attorneys questioned the accuser on her reaction when she received nude photographs from Conaway. Defense attorney Natalie Woloshin says the accuser never rejected the nude pictures from Conaway as her friend told her to unfriend him. The accuser told her friend that she didn't want to unfriend him. Woloshin showed the court text messages of the accuser with her friend laughing about the photographs. 

The state presented evidence of text messages from the accuser's phone and pictures of Conaway's Georgetown home. The pictures presented to the jury included the locations that the accuser used as a part of her timeline. The accuser answered questions regarding the incident of what led her to go to hospital that night on June 2018. The accuser was seen shaking as she testified in court Wednesday. 

Defense attorney Joe Hurley says the nurse who examined the accuser following the alleged assault was to take the stand Thursday. According to Hurley, the nurse who examined the accuser is trained to deal with people reporting to be victims of sex crimes. The defense says the nurse will be giving a testimony as to her findings and what was reported to her within hours of the event that took place. 

The accuser's testimony is expected to resume at 9:30 a.m. Thursday in Georgetown. Judge Richard Stokes told the jury they are expected to hear the evidence portion of the trial.

Conaway, 23, of Georgetown, is accused of sexually assaulting a total of six women.
