SUPERIOR, WI (WTAQ) - Jury deliberations are in their third day at the trial of David Van de Loo, the former Eau Claire pediatrician accused of molesting boys during medical exams.
Jurors deliberated for two hours on Tuesday and 10 hours Wednesday. They still couldn't agree on a verdict, so they resumed their discussions at 8:30 a.m. Thursday.
The 61-year-old Van de Loo is charged with 16 counts connected with alleged sexual contact of 15 male patients.
The former Mayo Health sports medicine and pediatric physician said there were legitimate medical reasons for the way he conducted his exams.
Jurors from Douglas County heard about two weeks of testimony and arguments. The trial was moved from Eau Claire to Superior because of heavy pre-trial publicity in western Wisconsin.
