A Boardman man is on trial in Mahoning County Court, accused of raping a 12-year-old girl.

Eric Damore is charged with rape and gross sexual imposition for allegedly forcing the child to engage in sex in October 2014.

The 43-year-old was arrested at his Firnley Avenue home early last year following an indictment handed up by the Mahoning County Grand Jury.

The prosecution began presenting witnesses on Wednesday and is expected to continue its case on Thursday morning.

If convicted of rape, Damore could be sentenced to life in prison.
