According to San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe, the trial will resume at 9 a.m. July 24, following a week-long break due to defense witness issues.
On July 16, the prosecution evidence was completed and six witnesses testified.
Mr. Wagstaffe said that defense attorney Jaime Leanos has stated that Forrest will take the stand in his defense to testify and tell the jury that he had child pornography for business purposes.
Mr. Forrest had worked for the county's probation department since 1977 and was appointed chief in 2009. He remains out of custody on a $100,000 bail bond.
The trial will resume in Department 43, San Mateo County Superior Court in Redwood City, with visiting Judge Robert Atack presiding.
