ELLICOTT CITY — Jury selection has begun in Ellicott City for the trial of a former Maryland School for the Deaf dormitory aide charged with sexually abusing seven female students in Columbia.

Clarence Taylor III, 38, of Gwynn Oak, pleaded not guilty to all charges Monday before the selection process began.

Howard County Circuit Judge William Tucker says 12 jurors and three alternates will be seated today before lawyers make opening statements.

Taylor is accused of molesting students from 2008 to 2011. The alleged victims were in the fourth through eighth grades.

Taylor allegedly kissed, hugged and fondled the girls during their overnight stays at the school.

He faces seven counts of sex abuse of a minor and three counts of soliciting a subject for child pornography.

    I agree. This seems to have been swept under the rug. Maybe the FNP will cover the trial to some degree and get us more information on what he did, to whom he did it, and whatever punishment if any is accorded.
