Salem babysitter’s 73-year-old husband on trial for sexual assault of child at his home
Opening arguments began Tuesday in trial of Ronald Libby, who is facing a single count of attempted aggravated felonious sexual assault for allegedly trying to get the girl to touch him between September 2008 and July 2010. The girl, now 10, testified in Rockingham County Superior Court about how she was solicited by Libby while being baby-sat by his wife.
A moment later, Libby’s wife, Nellie, was at the mother’s doorstep, saying that she never had any trouble with children being baby-sat at her home, according to Wilson. Libby stood next to his wife looking at the ground while she spoke.
Defense lawyer William Korman argued during opening statements that the girl simply fabricated a story about his client.
“The physical layout of the house will show it is next to impossible,” Korman said.
The case is expected to be the first of three trials for Libby, who faces charges that he had sexual contact with two other young girls in the 1990s. A grand jury indicted Libby in February on charges of felonious sexual assault and attempted felonious sexual assault on those two cases. The latest charges are expected to be tried separately.
