Jury Selection Begins in Perry Trial

A suspect in a series of crimes across Southeast Alabama goes on trial Tuesday in Dothan.

38-year-old Mark Gabriel Perry of Union Springs is charged with sodomy in connection with the sexual assault of a Dothan woman.

Perry was arrested earlier this year after he was accused in a crime-spree.

That resulted in charges for other sex crimes and robberies in Geneva, Ozark, Troy and Auburn.

He also faces federal charges for the robbery of the post office in Newton last December.

Jury selection begins Tuesday.

Perry is being held in the Houston County Jail.
