Closing arguments will get underway this afternoon in Oneida County Court in the trial of Trenton Town Supervisor Mark Scheidelman.

He’s charged with one count of sexual abuse for allegedly touching a ten-year old boy at his home in Barneveld last November.

Scheidelman took the stand this morning and denied the allegations.

He told jurors  that he never touched the victim inappropriately.

Scheidelman’s attorney George Aney made a motion to dismiss the charge against his client, but it was denied by Judge Michael Dwyer.

UPDATED 4:25: A verdict will not come today in the sexual abuse case against Mark Scheidelman.

Following more than an hour of closing arguments from both the prosecution and the defense, the jury went into deliberations shortly before 2-45 this afternoon.

Prior to adjourning for the day, a request was made by the jury to have the ten minute audio interview of State Police Investigator Todd Grant played back for them, along with the reading of more than 120 pages of testimony.

The jury will continue their deliberations tomorrow morning at nine.
