EARLIER:
The trial of former One Nation staffer Sean Black is nearing its end in the Brisbane District court today.
Black - who was the media adviser of dumped Senator Malcolm Roberts - is pleading not guilty to raping and assaulting a woman more than a decade ago.
In closing statements, crown prosecutor Brendan White told the jury they must accept the woman's testimony and convict Black on all four charges.
He argued that medical evidence supported her account of events.
