A RAPE trial jury is expected to retire to consider its verdicts this morning.
The prosecution say David Edgerton, 22, is a serial sex offender with a propensity for committing violent sexual offences.
The former Deeside man denies rape, attempted rape and the attempted abduction of a child.
Yesterday the jury at Mold Crown Court was told he would not be giving evidence in his own defence.
Closing speeches from the prosecution and defence took place and Judge Merfyn Hughes QC started to sum up the case. He will complete his summing up today then ask the jury to retire to consider their verdicts.
Edgerton, formerly of Howard Street, Connah’s Quay, is alleged to have attempted to rape a woman aged 20 in her home in Connah’s Quay, in 2009.
He told police the complainant identified the wrong man and that it was not him.
He is also alleged to have raped a woman in her 40s in Warrington last August but he told police in interview they had sex with consent.
Also last August he is alleged to have tried to abduct a schoolgirl from behind the community centre in Leeswood, near Mold.
Edgerton denies all charges.
The jury has been told Edgerton admits that later the same day he abducted another schoolgirl in Leeswood and raped her in nearby woods.
John Philpotts, prosecuting, said Edgerton had a propensity for committing violent sexual offences.
John Hedgecoe, defending, said the young woman who said Edgerton had tried to rape her could not be sure it was him, and he told the jury they could not be sure.
There were no fingerprints or forensic evidence to link him to the crime and her phone had not even been examined.
No prosecution had been brought at the time of that alleged offence in 2009.
He said there were a number of inconsistencies in the evidence given by the Warrington woman and he suggested the jury could not reply on it.
Mr Hedgecoe said that while the schoolgirl in Leeswood had picked out his client at an identification procedure, she could have picked him out as a man she had clearly seen in a local shop earlier.
