BROOKLYN - Jury selection began Wednesday in the case against three New York City police officers accused in connection with the sexual assault of a Brooklyn man.

Officer Richard Kern will stand trial for allegedly sodomizing Michael Mineo at the Prospect Park subway station.

Two other officers, Andrew Morales and Alex Cruz, are accused of attempting to cover up the alleged 2008 attack.

Mineo stated the officers accused him of marijuana possession but attacked him instead. The story was later confirmed by a transit officer who witnessed the incident.

All three officers are charged with aggravated sexual abuse.
