A jury in Ellicott City has resumed deliberations in the trial of a former Maryland School for the Deaf aide charged with sexually abusing seven middle-school girls.

Tuesday marks the second day of deliberations by the Howard County jury. The case went to the jury late Friday on the eve of the three-day, Veterans Day weekend.

Defendant Clarence Taylor III denies the girls' allegations that he touched their breasts or buttocks, and kissed two of them on the lips, while working as a boys' dormitory aide at the school's Columbia campus from 2008 to 2011.

Prosecutors say Taylor used hugs and elaborate handshakes as opportunities to brush his hands and arms across the girls' private parts.
