James Colby, a Fortuna resident is charged with Count 1-5: Intent to Commit Forcible Rape, Count 2 Assault/Intent oral copulation with person under age of 18, Count 7 Attempt Forcible Rape and Counts 15 and 16 Lewd/Lasvicious Act with a child under the age of 14.
The alleged victims were his foster children, a young boy 11 years old at the time and his sister, under the age of 18.
According to Colby who testified himself, this is retaliation by Jane Doe because she was upset with his rules. No media has followed this case or was there for closing.
I will have a post shortly with closing arguments.

There was detailed and graphic testimony during trial and references to it during closing. The case went to jury today after closing arguments.
