WHITE CO., IL (WFIE) - There could be a verdict Friday in the sex abuse trial of a suspended White County corrections officer.
39-year-old Phillip Lowery is accused of having unlawful sexual contact with a four-year-old at his Carmi home.
On Thursday, the defense called several witnesses to the stand including Lowery, his wife, his child and his niece.
Lowery testified that his wife was a babysitter for the four-year-old for two years, but says he was never alone with her.
Lowery has been un unpaid administrative leave since his arrest in July 2012.
