    SYCAMORE, Ill. (AP) - A Seattle man charged with sexually assaulting an Illinois teenager 50 years ago is set to discover his fate.

    Jack McCullough is accused of rape and indecent liberties with a child in Sycamore, Ill., in 1962. His accuser testified Tuesday that she was 14 when McCullough raped her and allowed two other men to do the same.

    DeKalb County Judge Robbin Stuckert says she will reach a verdict Thursday.

    The Daily Chronicle reports (http://bit.ly/HBya7w) that prosecutor Victor Escarcida said McCullough took advantage of the teen while he held a position of authority and trust.

    Public Defender Regina Harris argued no one can corroborate the victim's story and there is no physical evidence.

    McCullough is charged with the 1957 kidnapping and murder of a 7-year-old Sycamore girl in a separate trial.
