HEMPSTEAD - Town of Hempstead Clerk Mark Bonilla's accuser took the stand again today in a sexual harassment trial.

Ariel Davis was cross-examined during the second day of the trial.

Bonilla is accused of asking Davis' boyfriend, a fellow town employee, for inappropriate photos of her to use as blackmail after she filed a sexual harassment claim.

In court today, the prosecution showed video of Bonilla repeatedly touching Davis' arm in a car.

Davis admitted in court that she got a promotion on the same day that she went to human resources about Bonilla's behavior and that she consulted with a veteran town employee beforehand.

Bonilla opted out of a jury trial.

The embattled town clerk has refused to step down from his position since his arrest.
