POTSDAM, N.Y. -- The trial of a former college soccer coach accused of strangling his former girlfriends 12-year-old son in October 2011 starts this week and may result in a verdict, yet it will likely do little to quell the five-year controversy swirling in this rural village in northern New York.Some in Potsdam see Oral Nick Hillarys trial as a chance to finally bring a measure of justice for the family of Garrett Phillips. Justice For Garrett lawn signs still stand by roadsides and the case is still talked about often.Its on our minds, said Vikki Lavean, who works in Potsdam insurance office with a police flyer offering a reward for information in the case. We feel bad for the family. Hopefully, the mother will get some closure.But critics see a largely white community railroading a black man. The critics point to a dismissed indictment, an oft-criticized district attorney and an apparent lack of physical evidence tying Hillary to the apartment.After defense lawyers appeared in court in nearby Canton on Tuesday, they said the jury selection process scheduled to start Wednesday could stretch into next week as they filter out people who have signed petitions about the case or otherwise expressed opinions.Theres a history of visibility in this case, and thats the challenge that we have, defense lawyer Norman Siegel said. Can we find 12 people who are going to be fair and impartial?Garrett was found near death in the apartment he shared with his mother and younger brother after neighbors who heard noises called police. He died that night, Oct. 24, 2011.Police focused on Hillary early on. The Jamaica-born head soccer coach at Clarkson University had first come to northern New York as standout player at St. Lawrence University. Hillary and his teenage daughter had lived with the boys mother, Tandy Cyrus, and her two sons until the relationship ended in summer 2011.The district attorney at the time never bought charges. Things changed after Mary Rain became St. Lawrence County district attorney in 2014. Rain campaigned on a promise to make the Garrett investigation a priority and even appeared with his mother on the campaign trail.She secured a second-degree murder indictment against Hillary in 2014 that was later dismissed by a county judge. The judge said Rains grand jury presentation was marred by expressions of opinion and improperly prepared evidence.Rain got a second grand jury to hand up an indictment last year.Rain and Onondaga County District Attorney William Fitzpatrick, who is helping the prosecution, declined comment Tuesday.But court documents indicate prosecutors want to show Hillary had a controlling personality and blamed the boy for his troubled relationship with his mother. The trial judge last month blocked an attempt by prosecutors to introduce a high-tech DNA mixture profile from Garretts fingernail scrapings. Prosecutors have filed a motion asking the judge to reconsider.Hillary, now 42, has consistently said he is innocent. He showed up in court Tuesday in a blue suit and listened intently to his lawyers, but did not talk the media.His defenders claim police zeroed in on him and overlooked as a suspect a sheriffs deputy who also had a past relationship with Garretts mother. An assistant soccer coach who said he had Hillary over at his house around the time of the murder said police threatened to charge him if he didnt change his testimony.As Rain prepared for trial this year, she endured complaints about her overall job performance. County lawmakers in April cited allegation of incompetence and sexual harassment in passing a resolution expressing no confidence in Rain. They asked Gov. Andrew Cuomo to investigate Rain, who told reporters last month that it was best for the courts to look into the issue.A state court Committee on Professional Standards was asked by New Yorks association of district attorneys in April to investigate Rain. Court officials said last week they do not comment on whether such investigations are being conducted.

Despite Rising Romance and Pilote DEssai being well established, Lindsay Park still hopes to learn more about their two Ballarat Cup runners.The pair represent David and Ben Hayes and Tom Dabernig in the $300,000 Listed race on Saturday.After a good start to her spring when second to Black Heart Bart in the Memsie Stakes, Rising Romance has gradually lost form.She finished last in the Myer Classic on the opening day of the Melbourne Cup carnival before running eighth in the Matriarch Stakes over 2000m a week later.Dabernig is hoping she can turn it around on Saturday.She found the ground probably too firm on both occasions at Flemington, Dabernig said.Hopefully that Ballarat track wont race too firm. Shes better on softer ground for sure but its hard at this time of year.The Ballarat Cup gives Rising Romance the chance to break through for her first win since joining Lindsay Park in the spring of 2015 and her first since taking out a 1500m race in New Zealand earlier that year.Dabernig described Pilote Dessai as frustrating after recording three seconds from five spring outings.Pilote Dessai created a big impression with his Australian debut win at Bendigo last autumn but has become tricky to catch this campaign.dddddddddddd.Hes drawn wide but hes racing like he wants to be stretched out to this trip, Dabernig said.Hes in with a light weight and he runs very good sectionals all the time and always gets home hard.If he can do that at the end of 2200 metres, hell be a chance for sure.Two-year-old American Genius runs in the Magic Millions Clockwise Classic on Saturday with a view to a tilt at the $2 million Magic Millions 2YO Classic on the Gold Coast in January.American Genius competed in a jump-out the clockwise direction at Ballarat last week.The colt ran a debut third behind stablemate Madeenaty at Flemington last month and was immediately set for Saturdays race in which he wears blinkers for the first time.Hes had plenty of time following that Flemington run and has done a lot of work on his Sydney leg, Dabernig said.You never know how hell handle the race pressure, but Im pretty confident.If he won we could go straight to Queensland but if he was needing to get more money we would most likely give him a run in Sydney on the way.
