GONZALES - Former LSU running back Charles Scott is not expected to take the stand as testimony continued today in his sexual battery trial in Ascension Parish, according to his attorney.

A detective testified about her findings in the case, and Scott's behavior during interviews.

This came a day after Scott's accuser testified in court he climbed into bed with her after another man left the room and raped her.

Scott's attorney said a lack of bruising or cuts on her body prove that wasn't the case. She said she was too drunk to realize Scott wasn't the other man, whom she slept with consensually.

She told the court that she told Scott to stop several times.

The procedings are a bench trial, so a judge will determine Scott's fate instead of a jury.

News 2's Ryan Naquin will have more from today's procedings starting at 5 p.m.
