Lousisiana prosecutors are laying out their case in former Sheriff Jack Strain's sex crimes trial.

St. Tammany Parish prosecutors told jurors today there's plenty of evidence proving Strain molested multiple boys including two relatives. Defense attorneys say Strain is being set up by people looking to either stay out of prison for other crimes.

They also suggested the FBI manipulated others to accuse Strain of child abuse.

Strain could get life in prison if convicted. He's accused of four counts of aggravated rape, two counts of incest, one count of indecent behavior with a juvenile, and one count of sexual battery.
