The trial for a Lumberport man accused of sexually abusing two female children continued Thursday.
Judge J. Lewis Marks, Jr. heard closing arguments and the case went to a jury, comprised of eight men and four women, for deliberations around 2:25 p.m. Just before 5 p.m., the jury returned to ask Judge Marks a question regarding evidence in the case and continued deliberations. At 5:30 p.m., the jury announced that it had found Corriveau guilty on sexual abuse, incest and first degree sexual assault charges.
Judge Marks heard testimony Thursday from Michael Corriveau, who told the jury multiple times that he didn't perform the acts he is accused of committing. Corriveau took the stand for about 20 minutes.
