Sexual abuse case wraps up

Fisher’s fate up to Clark County jury

(Continued)

JEFFERSONVILLE —

According to the girl’s testimony, her ex-boyfriend told her that he had mentioned the alleged sexual abuse to her and also that he told her after the two had broken up that the allegations he made against Fisher were not true.

A series of conversations between the ex-girlfriend and the alleged female victim that occurred through Facebook in 2011 and 2012 were also presented to the court.

According to the testimony, the alleged female victim wrote in 2012, “What [my brother] said about [Fisher] ain’t true. If they find out what he said isn’t true, he’s going to jail.”

At the end of her testimony, the ex-girlfriend was asked what she thought of Fisher. 

“I don’t see her as a bad person,” the girl said.

The ex-girlfriend’s mother also was called in as a witness and was asked about the reputation the boy had in Charlestown.

“He had a habit of telling stories,” the girl’s mother said.

But she added that she told police, and reiterated during Tuesday’s testimony, that she believed Fisher was jealous of the relationship her daughter had with the alleged male victim.

“It seems like something strange is going on with the family, but I don’t know what,” the ex-girlfriend’s mom said.

According to the testimony Tuesday, a series of witnesses who lived with Fisher, her then boyfriend, and a number of family members said they never were aware of any sexual abuse taking place, nor did the alleged victims fear being with Fisher.

Fisher’s brother, Drew Fisher, who lived with her at the time of the alleged abuse, said he never saw anything that would indicate that abuse has occurred.

When asked if he trusted his sister with his children — who were also living in the same home — he said, “I trust her with my kids and my life.”
