DOVER, Del. (AP)- Jury selection is beginning in the retrial of a female substance abuse counselor in Delaware charged with sexually abusing a 16-year-old male client.
    
The jury selection process in the retrial of 31-year-old Rebecca Winters, also known as Rebecca Adams, was to begin Thursday morning after a Kent County judge considers pretrial motions by attorneys.
    
The judge declared a mistrial in the case two months ago after the defense raised several objections to testimony by a Dover police detective.
    
Winters was charged with multiple counts of rape and sexual abuse of a child by a person of trust, as well as providing alcohol to a minor, following an investigation involving a boy receiving treatment at Crossroads of Delaware.
    
Crossroads, a for-profit drug and alcohol counseling center in Milford, closed earlier this year.

    Amy Kyle's family has had connections to the Fenwick Island area for generations and enjoys the beach inside the state park that bears the town's name.

    But Kyle said she's concerned for the park and greater community because of discussions involving the State of Delaware and a Danish company seeking to build a transmission facility for an offshore wind farm --- in exchange for $18 million in improvements like increased parking capacity.
