Albany --  The prosecution wrapped up its testimony this afternoon in the Thomas Lowery Child Pornography case, and the defense started calling witnesses.

Lowery is the former Sumter County Sheriff's Office employee, who is charged with taking an 11-year-old boy to Los Angeles for sex and for having child pornography on his work computer.

Monday morning, former GBI Special Agent Ed Ricks gave expert testimony on computer forensics.

This afternoon the defense first witness was former Sumter County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Charlie Whitehead, who testified that at least eight people had keys to Lowery's office and his computer.

Testimony in the trial is expected to continue through Tuesday.
