Physical Evidence Revealed in Clay Conaway Rape Trial

Posted: Updated:

GEORGETOWN, Del.- The fourth day in the State vs. Clay Conaway trial began Thursday with the testimony from the nurse who examined the accuser hours after her alleged rape. 

The former University of Delaware baseball player is accused of sexually assaulting six women between 2013 and 2018. The accuser's physical clothing was presented to the jury as evidence.

Hours after the alleged rape, the accuser saw a sexual assault forensics nurse examiner at Beebe Healthcare. The nurse examined the accuser with a thorough body exam, inspecting her from head to toe. The state presented medical records from the nurse who treated the accuser. The nurse conducted a sexual assault rape kit. The kit included DNA swabs from the accuser and her underwear.

The Beebe examiner testified that the accuser told her, "I was sexually assaulted." In the accuser's medical records, the state said she was choked by Conaway. The nurse testified saying the accuser told her that she was pushed on the bed by Conaway with force. The nurse told the jury the only external pain she felt was in her right wrist.

The defense cross examined the Beebe nurse on how the accuser had no physical injuries noted.

Defense attorney Joe Hurley said the medical records showed that the accuser's pain level was a 0 out 10. The nurse testified said there was no internal or external injuries that she could visualize.

Hurley asked the nurse if the accuser had any physical marks on her neck from the alleged choking. The nurse testified saying there were no visible marks on the woman's neck or redness on the night of the incident. The defense questioned the nurse if the accuser complained about having any hip pain. Hurley showed medical records of the accuser being hospitalized for hip pain, two days after the incident. The nurse examiner testified that the accuser only complained of right wrist pain.

Later in the day the defense attorneys continued to cross examine the accuser on what they claimed were conflicting text messages.  Defense attorney Natalie Woloshin questioned the accuser about what she consented to on the night of the alleged rape. The accuser testified to going over to Conaway's home knowing his parents were not home, and willingly went into his bedroom.

Judge Richard Stokes told the jury to return Friday morning in Sussex County to continue cross-examination of the accuser.
