Children testify in Oklahoma sex abuse trial

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ More children are testifying in the federal trial of an Oklahoma man accused of sexual misconduct with children at an orphanage in Kenya.

Testimony resumed Monday in the trial of 20-year-old Matthew Lane Durham of Edmond. A former volunteer at the Upendo Children's Home in the Kenyan capital of Nairobi, Durham faces 17 counts of sexual misconduct including aggravated sexual abuse and engaging in illicit sexual misconduct in foreign places.

The federal courtroom was cleared of the public and media Monday morning as one of the children took the witness stand, assisted by an interpreter. Durham has pleaded not guilty to the charges and faces life in prison if convicted.

Government prosecutors plan to rest their case Monday afternoon, when defense attorney Stephen Jones will begin presenting evidence on Durham's behalf.
