AKRON -- A jury selected in the trial of suspended Dr. James Bressi is expected to visit the offices where prosecutors say he sexually assaulted a number of his female patients.

Bressi, whose medical license was suspended last summer, faces a 27-count indictment, which includes two counts of rape.

A number of patients complained to both the Investigator Tom Meyer and to Stow Police that Bressi became aroused and touched them inappropriately without their consent during their medical appointments.

Bressi has denied any wrongdoing and his lawyer, Michael Callahan, said he looks forward to proving his client is not guilty of the charges.

Bressi was arrested nearly a year ago. He's been free on a $1 million bond.

According to a State Medical report, Bressi was terminated in March of last year from his job at Summit Pain Specialists in Stow following complaints from female patients.
