PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - Jury selection is set to being in the trial of a Portland man accused of inappropriately touching one of his passengers while driving for a ride service company.

WMTW-TV reports (http://bit.ly/2lqf8pS ) Clemente Ilama has denied charges of unlawful sexual contact following his arrest earlier this month.

The victim has claimed Ilama made sexually graphic comments to her and moved his hand up her leg twice while serving as her driver for Atlantic Transportation. The company provides non-emergency rides for Mainecare recipients to medical appointments.

Atlantic Transportation officials say Ilama will not continue to work for the Portland-based service.

Attorneys will begin selecting a jury for Ilama’s trial on Monday.
