Jury selection is set to get underway today in the trial of the three NYPD officers accused of sodomizing a man inside a subway station. Michael Mineo of Brooklyn says Officer Richard Kern sodomized him with a collapsible police baton on a Prospect Park subway platform in October 2008.

Officers Alex Cruz and Andrew Morales are accused of covering up the assault and could get four years in prison.

Kern is facing 25-years behind bars.

Mineo is expected to be the star witness.
