Additionally, this witness described an incident in which she sat in the Pellebon’s massage chair, located in the living room, and noticed Pellebon watching her breasts shake.
The witness said Pellebon’s wife wasn’t present but could not remember if his children were when this occurred. The witness never said anything to Pellebon to let him know she was uncomfortable.
Lastly, the witness testified about massages Pellebon gave to her and her sister on various occasions. The witness described the massages as back massages that occurred on the bed in Pellebon’s bedroom. At the time, the witness wore a bra, but she could not remember if Pellebon or herself unhooked it at the time of the massages or if it was unhooked at all.
Defense attorney Smith cross-examined the witness and asked her several questions as to who instigated both her sitting in the massage chair and receiving a massage.
The witness said she chose to sit in the massage chair and Pellebon had never asked her to do so, but she said she never asked Pellebon for a massage.
The witness also affirmed her preliminary hearing testimony that Pellebon had only touched her back and shoulders, but the witness had trouble recalling her age at the time of the incidents.
Both the prosecution and the defense tried to pin down the witness’ age as 15, 16 or 17, but the witness could not be sure in her answers.
Next, the jury heard the preliminary hearing testimony of an 11-year-old female witness and watched the preliminary hearing video testimony of her father. Neither of these witnesses was available to appear in-person during the trial because they are out of the country.
The 11-year-old witness testified about rubbing and petting she received from Pellebon on various occasions while at the Pellebon home or at the movies.
