RACINE, Wis. (AP) - The defense attorney for a SC Johnson heir is pressing the Wisconsin Supreme Court for the medical records of a teenager the billionaire executive is accused of sexually assaulting.
The justices heard arguments Monday from Mark Richards, the attorney for Samuel Curtis Johnson. The Racine executive has pleaded not guilty to molesting the 18-year-old for three years, beginning when she was 12.
Richards says the defense is seeking the records to determine whether the teen ever reported sexual abuse allegations during therapy. The Racine Journal Times says Richards contends two therapists who met with the girl never reported abuse, which they are mandated by law to do.
The criminal case against Johnson is on hold while the constitutional issues are resolved. The justices did not indicate when they would rule.
