Child sex crimes trial begins in Minot

MINOT, N.D. - Jury selection began Monday in Minot in the trial of a man accused of sexually assaulting a girl in October of 2015.

Sixty-nine-year-old Lorin Hove faces a AA-felony charge of gross sexual imposition.

Last week a judge rejected a request from Hove’s defense team to continue the trial.

Hove, who has been in custody for more than a year, has had six different defense attorneys assigned to him since his arrest.

The trial is scheduled to run through Friday.

Hove faces the chance of life in prison if convicted.
