Corsicana — Jury selection is scheduled to start Monday in the 13th District Court in Navarro County for Joey Dauben, accused of the 2007 sexual assault of a child during a church field trip to Navarro Mills.

Dauben, the former blogger and publisher of the online Ellis County Observer, was arraigned in 2011 on the charges.

In November 2012, Dauben was found guilty of fraudulent use of identifying information in an unrelated case in Ellis county, and sentenced to five years community supervision with a possible one year in prison and a fine of $2,400.

The trial is expected to last a week, said R. Lowell Thompson, Navarro County District Attorney.
