Jury selection begins Monday in Scott County District Court in the fourth child sex abuse trial of Melvin T. Lucier.

Lucier, 55, is charged with one count of third-degree sexual abuse, a Class C felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison.

Prosecutors say Lucier abused a 13-year-old boy in 2011 at the Patriot Mobile Home Park, 4847 W. Kimberly Road, Davenport, where Lucier lived.

Lucier is serving multiple life sentences after being found guilty of second-degree sexual abuse charges in three separate cases.
