Man on trial for sexual abuse on cruise ship

Albany Federal Courthouse Albany Federal Courthouse
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A man is on trial in Albany Federal Court, accused of sexually abusing a woman during a high school graduation cruise in international waters.

Federal Prosecutors say Britt Scarbrough, of Pelham, Georgia was on a cruise to the Bahamas in June 2014 celebrating graduation from Pelham High School, when he took advantage of an intoxicated woman.

Because Scarbrough was accused of the sexual abuse on the high seas, he is on trial in federal court.
