Jurors deliberating in trial against Medina man facing assault charges
ALBION – Jurors in a trial against a Medina man facing sexual assault charges resumed deliberating at 9:30 this morning.
Closing statements were completed on Thursday morning and jurors started deliberations after lunch.
The trial started Monday in the case involving Gerardo Quiros, 31, of Medina. He allegedly held a woman against her will for several weeks, while physically and sexually assaulting her.
Quiros is facing 24 counts, including seven counts of first-degree rape, 10 counts of criminal sexual act in the first degree, one count of third-degree assault, one count of both criminal possession of a controlled substance in the third and fifth degrees, two counts of endangering the welfare of a child, criminal mischief in the fourth degree, and unlawful possession of marijuana.
Quiros has been in the county jail after his bail was revoked in January by Judge Sara Sheldon.
