Jury selection continues Tuesday in the case of a Gainesville man accused by police of performing a medical exam on a man that led to a “non-consensual sexual encounter.”

Jamieson Leland Allen, 48, was charged in an April 2015 indictment with practicing medicine without a license, aggravated sodomy, sodomy and sexual battery.

According to the victim’s family, the man was approached by Allen about moving furniture.

When at the home, Allen allegedly performed an exam on the victim “under disguise of medical work,” Gainesville Police previously told The Times.

In court documents, Allen denies telling the alleged victim he was a doctor and claims the incident was a “constitutionally protected consensual encounter.”

“The State has full knowledge that the encounter between Allen and (the victim) is constitutionally protected and objectively consensual despite (the victim’s) post-encounter desire to blame Allen for his decision to engage in consensual sexual activity,” according to court filings.

Jury selection will continue Tuesday in Superior Court Judge Kathlene Gosselin’s courtroom.
