ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Jury selection is underway for a new trial for Enock Arviso, the former jail guard accused of raping an inmate.

Enock Arvizo resigned from the Metropolitan Detention Center in 2015.

An inmate claimed he raped her in a District Court elevator while escorting her from a hearing.

After she came forward, two other inmates did as well.

Bernalillo County paid more than $2 million to the three women.

In May, Arvizo went to trial for the first case involving the alleged rape in the elevator.

Jurors found Arvizo not guilty of one count, but could not come to an agreement on a second count.
