    TX - "Spontaneous erection" + "bat cave" "Botox queen" Dr. Day's trial heads to jury

    A wild one in old San Antonio TX.

    Dr. Day's fate now is up to the jury.(San Antonio Express-News)
    After a blush-inducing day of testimony and a failed attempt by prosecutors to call additional accusers to the stand, jurors began deliberating Friday in the patient sexual assault trial of Dr. Calvin Day.

    The once-prominent San Antonio dermatologist, 61, could face up to 20 years in prison if the group finds him guilty of the August 2010 assault of a then-46-year-old Botox patient in a secluded area of his office known as the “bat cave.”

    Defense attorneys Jay Norton and Alan Brown referred to the patient during closing arguments as a “Botox queen” who, despite an acting background, couldn't keep her story straight during five days of testimony.

    The defense also allowed some of the behind-the-scenes tension with prosecutors — which started last week with hotly disputed accusations that District Attorney Susan Reed is the defendant's “jilted lover” — to bubble up in front of the jury for the first time.

    But the woman has nothing to gain from making something like this up, responded Catherine Babbitt, chief of the district attorney's family justice unit.

    “She's not after money. She's not after fame. She's not after glory,” Babbitt argued.

    The one new witness who did get to testify Friday was longtime Day employee Christine Lewis, who said she has also been his mistress for the past 15 years. As a result, the risqué subject matter of Day's genitals dominated the day.

    Lewis testified that Day had erectile dysfunction that would have prevented a “spontaneous erection” as the accuser described.

    The DA Susan Reed stuff alone makes this one interesting to San Antonians.

    Once-prominent San Antonio dermatologist Dr. Calvin Day's relief turned to anguish Wednesday, when — shortly after learning a jury had decided to give him probation instead of prison — he also was informed his son appeared to have committed suicide.

    Jurors returned the punishment verdict for sexual assault of a patient at about 10:30 a.m. following 14 hours of deliberations that stretched over two days. Immediately afterward, state District Judge Ron Rangel ordered Day, 61, to register as a sex offender and to serve six months under house arrest as conditions of the probation.

    Less than an hour later, Zachary Day, 29, was killed on Interstate 10 near The Rim after stopping his pickup on the side of the road and stepping in front of an 18-wheeler, according to police reports.

    Wow! That's a hell of a soap opera going on there!

    So sad about the son though.
