☛ TS Closing arguments expected to begin today in Gundersen c
Over the past four weeks, the jury has seen the prosecution try to paint a picture of Gundersen as a controlling and overpowering husband who began having sex with Seal against her will and while she was unconscious after marital difficulties hampered the couple's sex life.

The prosecution has tried to show that Seal was honest with investigators during the Feb. 8 interview that led to her husband's arrest, and has only since recanted her allegations out of a fear of her husband.

The defense has tried to paint a picture of Seal as a dishonest and emotionally unstable woman who made a habit of saying one thing and doing another or telling varying versions of the same story.

Further, the defense has tried to how that Seal was a pawn in a plan hatched and executed by Gundersen's ex-wife in an effort to gain full custody of the couple's two children.

As to the matter of the guns Gundersen is charged will illegally possessing, the defense has tried to show Gundersen lawfully owned them as a part of his official duties as police chief, while the prosecution has tried to show Gundersen possessed them for purposes outside of his former capacity as Blue Lake's top law enforcement officer.
