LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A famed jockey accused of domestic violence, will not be defending himself on the witness stand. The jury could soon be deliberating on the case.
The defense did not call the defendant, jockey Robby Albarado, to the stand as the trial begins to wrap up. Albarado is on trial for domestic abuse of his ex-girlfriend.
The alleged victim says she got into an argument with Albarado on April 30th when she went to his house, went through his cell phone and listened to a voicemail from another woman, and then called that woman. She says Albarado attacked her.
The defense only called one witness -- a friend of Robby Albarado, who also became friends with the alleged victim.
The witness says the woman called him after the altercation seeking advice, but says she told a different story.
He says she was upset, and told him she had gone over to Albarado's house, caught him cheating by going through his phone, and after Albarado ripped the phone away, he threatened to call police after she tried stayed there to talk things out with him. "She said believe it or not he went and laid in his bed, put the phone on his chest, and watched TV like he didn't even care," said Matt O'Keith on the witness stand.
A detective testified about his meetings with the woman, and examined pictures of the bruises on her arm, hips and back. "She was definitely in pain, when I met her she was in a sling." said Detective John Jawor, with LMPD's Domestic Violence Unit, "She was feeling a considerable amount of pain."
The defense has argued that the woman should not have been at Albarado's home, that she barged in while he was sleeping. Albarado was arrested the morning of the Kentucky Oaks for assault, and suspended from horse racing in Kentucky. In 2011, Albarado was accused of abusing his former wife. He pleaded guilty to lesser charges in that case.
