ALBANY -- The trial of an Albany man accused of molesting twin girls who lived with him in the 1990s is scheduled to begin Monday in Alameda County Superior Court.

Raymond Anderson is accused of six counts of molestation. His case is scheduled to begin at 8:30 a.m. Monday in Department 11 at the Rene C. Davidson Courthouse.

At that time, the case will be assigned to another department and lawyers will begin the process of selecting a jury, according to the Alameda County District Attorney's office.

Anderson was arrested in February 2012, and accused of molesting the girls beginning in 1991 when they were 12.

Anderson is a former city Traffic and Safety Commissioner, had an estate liquidation business in Albany until he retired in 2008 and ran a pumpkin patch and Christmas tree lot in town. He has also been on the board of the Solano Avenue Association, is a past spokesman for the Solano Stroll, and has served on the board for the Albany Chamber of Commerce.

A pretrial hearing in June included testimony from police officers and the accusers.
