Testimony is expected to begin Wednesday (Nov 4.) in the Genesee County Court trial of a city woman accused of molesting a 2-year-old boy she was babysitting.

Attorneys selected a jury Monday in County Court in the case against Jennifer L. Ferguson, 30.

Ferguson is charged with first-degree sexual abuse, which carries a maximum seven-year prison term. City police arrested her in December after the boy’s mother told police she came home from work and saw Ferguson abusing her son.

Ferguson, of 679 East Main Street, Genesee County, New York is being represented by Public Defender Gary Horton. District Attorney Lawrence Friedman is prosecuting.

Deadlocked jury in child molestation trial

A jury Friday failed to reach a verdict in the Genesee County Court trial of a city woman accused of molesting a 2-year-old boy.

Jurors deliberated about six hours before telling Judge Robert C. Noonan that they were hopelessly deadlocked on a verdict.

Noonan agreed and dismissed the jury.

District Attorney Lawrence Friedman said he will try the case against Jennifer L. Ferguson again, and Noonan set a trial date for Nov. 30, ironically the original date Ferguson was scheduled to face trial.

Ferguson, 30, of 679 East Main St. is charged with first-degree sexual abuse and accused of molesting the boy while babysitting Nov. 23, 2008.

The boy’s mother testified Wednesday that she came home from work and saw Ferguson with her pants down and the child in front of her on the floor. Ferguson in a statement to police admitted being sexually gratified, one of the factors for the felony sex abuse charge.

Friedman called only one other witness on Wednesday, a city police detective.

Public Defender Gary Horton called several witnesses Thursday, including Ferguson. She testified, saying that she was not sexually gratified and that she pulled her shirt up because the boy asked her to. She said the boy also kept tugging her pants down, Friedman said.
