GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) - The trial of a high school tutor continues today with the judge trying to determine whether claims the victim was a virgin are accurate or admissible in testimony.
Abigail Simon, 33, is charged with sexually assaulting a 15-year-old Catholic Central student while acting as his tutor. Simon claims that she was assaulted by the teen. Both admit to having a sexual relationship.
Tuesday morning, the judge in the case heard arguments that he will have to determine if evidence that allegedly shows the 15-year-old was not a virgin would be admissible in court. He is allowing some questions about the teen's virginity to be presented. The teen admitted to joking about having sex with others and having gone to porn web sites.
On the stand, the teen maintained that he was a virgin. He said that Simon liked rough sex, but the defense hinted that was the teen's idea.
