SUPERIOR, Wis. (AP) - Jurors have deliberated a second day without reaching a verdict in the trial of an Eau Claire pediatrician accused of sexually assaulting male patients during medical exams.
The jury of eight men and four women deliberated for 10 hours Wednesday before asking the judge if they could go home for the day.
The Leader-Telegram reports Judge Michael Schumacher dismissed jurors and instructed them to return to their deliberations at 8:30 a.m. Thursday.
Jurors got the case of Dr. David Van de Loo on Tuesday and deliberated two hours on the first day.
Van de Loo is facing 16 charges that include multiple child sex assault counts. He maintains there were legitimate medical reasons for the exams.
The trial was moved from Eau Claire to Superior because of pre-trial publicity.
