Edmonson Rape Trail
A Bedford County man facing more than two thousand counts of rape and sexual assault will be heading to trial. Michael Edmonson's three alleged victims confronted him in court Wednesday morning and described graphic secrets they said they have been keeping for years until the youngest went to the Police in February. In court on Wednesday, Michael Edmonson faced his accusers for the first time since he was arrested earlier this month. The three girls who never looked his way as they described in graphic detail their allegations against him. The girls looked embarrassed and ashamed as they spoke quietly on Wednesday through tears describing the abuse. The older girls said it would always happen as they were together but the defense pointed out that during testimony they never said they witnessed abuse happening to each other. Another problem the defense has are the charges specifically when it some to the exact age of the girls at the time of their allegations and the number of counts against him.
