Bodenweiser had been charged with 15 offenses. He is accused of repeatedly molesting the boy between October 1987 and August 1990.

Former state Senate candidate Eric Bodenweiser took the stand in his sexual molestation trial and admitted that he did show his accuser adult movies – which he called “a horrible mistake.”

But he denied any sexual wrong doing.

Bodenweiser said that in 1991 he found his alleged accuser had broken into his house and looking at a copy of Playboy in his bedroom and initially told him to leave.

But eventually, he said, he allowed the boy who was 14 years old at the time to watch pornographic videos in his home.

The attorney for Eric Bodenweiser field a motion yesterday for an immediate court hearing on whether his accuser in his molestation case was coached.

The former Delaware state Senate Candidate has been accused of sexual abuse in the late 1980’s when the alleged victim was between 10 and 12 years old.

Defense attorney Joe Hurley told the judge that the victim’s appearance and voice seemed to improve which he called suspicious.

On Tuesday the alleged victim appeared angry – even yelling at Hurley.

The following day he was more visibly in control.
