BRADLEY BEACH, N.J.
An Ohio man is awaiting a verdict after a day at a New Jersey beach ended with his arrest.
It all started when the 59-year-old consulting engineer from Milford, Ohio, tried to get the key for the wheelchair ramp in Bradley Beach so he could get his 24-year-old daughter on the sand in July. She has cerebral palsy.
The Asbury Park Press reports Placa on Thursday testified he went to a beach hut, opened the door and asked for the key.
But the cashier who was working in the hut said she thought Placa was breaking in.
The judge will reach a verdict after attorneys submit summations within three weeks.
