A three-week retrial will begin Monday for a former forensic psychiatrist accused of molesting two patients.

Dr. Aubrey Levin, 74, is accused of sexually molesting two men during their visits to his office at Peter Lougheed Centre.

A jury was chosen on Friday to hear the case, which will be presided over by Justice Beth Hughes.

The trial involves two of four counts of sexual assault that resulted in a hung jury after Levin’s first trial.

The two other counts were subsequently stayed by the Crown. Levin, who conducted courtordered assessments and wrote reports for court proceedings, was convicted on three further counts of sexual assault and sentenced to five years in prison. He was acquitted on two others.

Levin appealed the three convictions and the arguments were heard last October, but the Alberta Court of Appeal has not yet ruled.
