DOVER, Del. (AP) - Jury selection is beginning in the retrial of a female substance abuse counselor charged with sexually abusing a 16-year-old male client.

The jury selection process in the retrial of 31-year-old Rebecca Winters, also known as Rebecca Adams, was to begin Thursday morning after a Kent County judge considers pretrial motions by attorneys.

The judge declared a mistrial in the case two months ago after the defense raised several objections to testimony by a Dover police detective.

Winters was charged with multiple counts of rape and sexual abuse of a child by a person of trust, as well as providing alcohol to a minor, following an investigation involving a boy receiving treatment at Crossroads of Delaware.

Crossroads, a for-profit drug and alcohol counseling center in Milford, closed earlier this year.
