Child molestation case begins

Thursday, January 22, 2004

Opening evidence began Wednesday morning in Clay Superior Court in the Glenn Culler trial. Court records say Culler, a Bowling Green resident, is accused of inappropriate sexual contact with at least four different female juveniles younger than the age of 14, between 1991 and 2002.

Four counts of child molesting were filed against Culler on Dec. 20, 2002. The prosecutor's office filed amended charges to one count of child molesting, a Class A Felony and two C Felony counts of child molesting.

An A Felony is punishable by 20-50 years in jail and up to a $10,000 fine. A C Felony conviction can receive two to eight years in jail and up to a $10,000 fine.

The prosecution and defense both rested their case yesterday afternoon. Closing arguments should have been given this morning and the case was expected to go to the jury by noon today.
