Testimony continues in Jordan Johnson rape tiral

MISSOULA - During day eight of the rape trail of suspended University of Montana quarterback Jordan Johnson, prosecutors continued the playing the interview from last May when Johnson gave police his side of the story.

Johnson cried as he told detectives that he didn't care about football and said that all he wanted was for his life to go back to normal.

Missoula Police Detective Connie Brueckner also continued her testimony, saying that during that taped interview, Johnson never said anything about receiving mixed signals from the woman.

Even though it's unusual, the defense called two of its witnesses in the middle of the state's case, because those witnesses were from out of town.

Doctor Ted Hariton testified that First Step Nurse Practitioner Claire Francoeur didn't to the medical examination on the alleged victim correctly.

"The photographs she took didn't validate her report-her report didn't match her photographs and that the way she did the exam was below the standard of care for doing exams," explained Hariton, who is a forensic gynecologist.

Prosecutors suggested that he doesn't have the same training as Francoeur, and also doesn't know how those examinations are conducted in Montana.

Johnson's high school football coach and family friend also took the stand for the defense and characterized Johnson as a gentleman and a leader.
