Jury of 7 whites, one black chosen for Army sex trial

A jury of seven whites and one black was seated Friday in the sexual misconduct case of Sgt. Maj. Gene McKinney, once the Army's highest-ranking enlisted man, who claims he is being prosecuted because he is black.

Jury selection took three days. McKinney is accused of grabbing, propositioning or threatening six women under his command. Opening statements are scheduled for Monday.
