A jury was selected Thursday for the trial of a Slope County man accused of a sex crime, said Annetta Anderson, Bowman County clerk of court.
Jamie Barnes’s trial is being held at the Bowman County Courthouse and continues today at 9 a.m.
Barnes is charged with felony gross sexual imposition.
He allegedly had sexual contact in September with a girl who was 10 years old at the time, according to officials.
Barnes disputes all allegations.
If convicted of gross sexual imposition, he faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
