The prosecution has rested its case in the second trial of Joshua Carrier.

Now it's the defense's turn.

Carrier's attorneys will begin the job Friday of convincing jurors that the allegations of sexual abuse are false. They are fighting more than 100 child sex counts dating back from Carrier's time as a volunteer wrestling coach at Horace Mann Middle School.

In his first trial earlier this year, Carrier was found guilty on 21 counts of sexual exploitation and not guilty on 36 counts of touching the boys. The jury was unable to reach a decision on 150 other charges.

The current trial is expected to end sometime next week. 11 News will be in the courtroom throughout the remainder of the trial, and will let you know what happens in the courtroom.
