Testimony continues in child sex tourism case
MIAMI (AP) -- A Michigan man accused of sexually abusing Haitian children is scheduled to continue testifying in Miami federal court.
Matthew Andrew Carter first took the stand Friday. The Brighton, Mich., man will resume his testimony Tuesday morning.
Carter has been in U.S. custody since his 2011 arrest at Miami International Airport. He ran a group home for poor children in Haiti's capital from 1995 through 2011.
On the opening day of Carter's trial, two Haitian men testified that Carter forced them to perform sexual acts on him when they were children living at the Morning Star Center.
One of Carter's attorneys told the jury that children lived at the center with their parents' permission and were always free to leave.
Haiti's government shut down the center after Carter's arrest.
