Trial is underway for a man accused of sex offenses involving his granddaughter at his home in a remotely located area between Yucca and Lake Havasu City. 59-year-old Patrick Haslem is charged with four counts of sexual abuse for alleged touching of the girl when she was between 15 and 17 years of age.

Haslem was present when jury selection began Monday at the Mohave County courthouse. Haslem, however, was absent when trial began Tuesday.
