WACO -- Closing arguments began today in Gatesville over a child sex assault trial of a Copperas Cove man that charged with assaulting a young girl over a period of time.
40-year-old Mark Anthony Aponte's trial heard summations from both sides of the case and deliberation was set to begin immediately after.
Aponte turned himself into Copperas Cove police back in 2009 after a charge was filed by a then 15-year-old girl who claimed he had molested her over a four year period.
Trial began last Monday and both prosecutors and the defense rested their cases yesterday.
