EDMOND, Okla. — Testimony continues in the trial of an Edmond man accused of sexually abusing African orphans during a mission trip in Kenya.

A forensic interviewer who accompanied the FBI agent who opened the investigation to Kenya last year took the stand Monday.

She testified that she interviewed the victims at the orphanage, and they disclosed the alleged sexual abuse to her.

The second of six alleged victims that came to Oklahoma testified today, as well. The courtroom was sealed off during the child’s testimony.

Prosecutors say they do not intend to have all six children recount their experiences in court.

Another psychologist is expected to testify as to why children don’t always immediately disclose sexual abuse, as was the case with these victims.

If convicted, Durham faces life in prison.
