Things heated up between the man accusing former state Senate candidate Eric Bodenweiser of sexual abuse and his defense attorney in a Delaware courtroom yesterday.

The alleged victim says he was molested as a young boy during the 1980’s.

As defense attorney Joe Hurley sparred with him over – what Hurley said – were five inconsistencies in previous interviews

At one point the alleged victim lashed out saying “I don’t know how you could defend someone like that.”

Afterward Hurley told WBOC outside the courtroom that he did not mean to offend the accuser but attributed the outbursts to frustration after being caught in a lie.
