(Conner trial could go to the jury by Tuesday)….Joe Conner is being tried on several molestation charges.
Two accusers claim they were molested over a nine-year period. Conner is a youth pastor and Coach of the Southwest High School Football team. He is on administrative leave from his coaching duties. He also worked at the Naval Air Facility, El Centro. Conner recently took the stand in his defense. He denied all charges during his testimony, saying he was in the situation he was in because of his race. In a positive note for the defense, the Superior Court judge dismissed two of the charges filed against Conner, and said he would consider dismissing a third charge.
