Jury selection in UM quarterback trial to wrap up
Jury selection is expected to wrap up in the trial of former University of Montana quarterback Jordan Johnson.
Defense attorneys were still questioning potential jurors Friday when the day ended. More than 150 people packed Missoula's Holiday Inn as attorneys attempted to select an impartial panel.
The final members of the jury are expected to be chosen at the courthouse Monday morning, with opening arguments and testimony getting under way afterward.
The trial is expected to last 11 days.
Johnson is accused of raping an acquaintance while they watched a movie at her residence last year. Johnson says the sex was consensual.
The trial is beginning as the NCAA and Justice Department conduct separate investigations of how the school and the city of Missoula respond to rape allegations on campus
