BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. (AP) - A trial is set to begin for a former police officer who is accused of raping a 20-year-old woman last year while on duty.

Local media outlets report that 36-year-old Stephen Maiorino will face trial Tuesday. Maiorino was arrested after a 20-year-old woman said he raped her at gunpoint while on duty. Maiorino faces multiple charges, including two counts of armed sexual battery by a law enforcement officer.

An arrest report says Maiorino offered to give the woman a ride home after a friend she was riding with was arrested for DUI. The woman says Maiorino forced her to perform a sex act on him, then drove her to a secluded area and raped her, threatening to kill her if she told.

Maiorino’s attorneys say the sex was consensual.
