Trial Begins For Medical Center Rapist

The trial of a suspect known as the Medical Center rapist is underway. Anton Harris is accused of five sexual assaults in the Medical Center area over a two-year period. Harris pleaded guilty in August to all five counts as part of a plea deal, but a judge rejected the deal and sent the case to trial. Jury selection started on Tuesday. If he's convicted, Harris could be sentenced to life in prison for each charge, instead of the 40-year sentence that the plea deal bargained for.
