Norberg Trial: Will the Defendant Take the Stand?

Posted: Updated:

Dr. Jon Norberg is accused of drugging his wife with the sedative Propofol without her consent before sexually assaulting her. If he's found guilty, he could get life in prison.

Over the last two days, his defense has tried to counter the version of events that his wife Alonna Norberg told the court.

Following today's testimony, Valley News Live's Emily Welker tracked down defense attorney Robert "Bob" Hoy and asked him point-blank whether his client would testify -- and it turns out that even attorney Hoy doesn't know if Dr. Norberg will testify. Hoy added that the defendant is making his decisions one day at a time, and that defendants typically testify last.  

We are set to hear testimony from one more expert on Monday, and we'll have to wait to find out who will be on the stand to close out the defense's case.
