In Court: Jury selection begins at 9 a.m. in Courtroom 401 at the Flagler County courthouse in the trial of Monserrate Teron, 59, a nurse and Army veteran arrested in Palm Coast two years ago. He is charged with two capital felony counts of raping a girl younger than 12, and a first-degree felony count of molesting a girl younger than 12. He faces life in prison if convicted. He is not eligible for the death penalty despite a new law that now makes defendants in his position potentially eligible. See: “In Trial of Man Accused of Raping 7 Year Old, Judge Will Allow Evidence ‘Devastating to Defend’.”
