It's been nearly six years since sexual assault charges were first lodged against James Mauti, a sports-medicine physician in Springfield, N.J. His accuser is his former bookkeeper, who alleges that when she sought treatment for her back pain Mauti instead drugged and then molested her and took photos during the incident.

This week, jury selection will begin in the bizarre case which, among other things, has pitted two sisters against each other. The alleged sexual assault victim, whose name has been withheld to protect her identity, is the sister of Mauti's wife, Jeannette, who was also employed by the doctor at the time as an office manager.
