MIDLAND --The trial against a Big Spring man accused of keeping a so-called rape kit in his vehicle continued Wednesday in Midland.
Guerra was caught with the items in his car back in April 2010. A witness used a dummy Wednesday to showcase how his bungee cord with what appeared to be sock taped to it could be a gag and so forth. The defense said that Guerra used all this material for target practice. The prosecution reply to this was "So Viagra and condoms could be used for target practice?"
The most disturbing part of the day was the map investigators found in Guerra's car. On it was a list of all the schools in Midland. Also, it contained addresses of homes of children who Guerra was allegedly stalking. The courtroom was packed full of young kids there to support one their friends who was testifying. One young girl was a victim of stalking. Yet, she said she couldn't believe she was being followed. Guerra was looking down at the floor during her testimony. Now one woman who has been sitting in the trial all week long is one of the children's mother whose license plate was in Guerra's notes. She told Big 2 that she sees this as a lesson learned.
"Well we think Midland is safe," said Cindy White, a concerned parent. "And it is, safer than a lot of places. Its good with this heightened sense of awareness that it happens anywhere. And so were still a safe town I think and we just need to teach our kids to teach our kids to be very very careful and be in touch with them,"
Cindy will be back in court tomorrow. If Guerra is found guilty he could face up to 20 years behind bars on each count, or 80 years total.
