BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) - Emotional testimony began in a rape trial Thursday morning as the jury heard form the alleged victim and her mother.

Officials charged 19-year-old Adam Hudson of West Virginia with raping a 12-year-old relative in 2008, while their two families were vacationing near Holden Beach.

Many of Hudson's family members and friends were in court to support him.

Hudson's attorney tells us people raised nearly $60,000 for his bail when the teenager was originally arrested.
