A JURY of 10 men and two women will resume deliberations on Thursday in the sexual assault trial of Lifestyle Solutions founder David Hogg.

Mr Hogg is charged with a single count of sexual intercourse without consent, relating to an alleged incident in 1988, when he was a 35-year-old Baptist minister and the complainant a 16-year-old school girl who had been in his care on work experience.

Mr Hogg has pleaded not guilty with a defence that the complainant is lying and that the alleged offences did not take place. He gave an alibi that he was elsewhere at the time.

The jury began deliberations on Tuesday afternoon.

It has returned to the court room more than once, seeking clarification from Judge Antony Townsend, asking him about certain aspects of the evidence and his legal directions.
