GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WZZM) -- The tutor on trial for having sex with one of her students took the stand in her own defense Friday afternoon.
Abigail Simon is accused of assaulting the then-15-year-old Grand Rapids Catholic Central High School student. The defense has claimed that Simon was the victim of assault from the teen.
"Why did you tell the detective that you didn't engage in sex," asked a defense attorney.
"Because I didn't," Simon testified.
"Can you elaborate on what that means?"
"I didn't engage in sex with him."
"He forced me to have sex with him."
