Since he was arrested last year, five people connected to the group have pleaded guilty.

Women, who prosecutors say were once Raniere's loyal followers, are now set to testify against him.

A jury of eight men and four women will hear the case.

NewsChannel 13 will have a crew in Brooklyn for opening statements on Tuesday and have live reports on air and online.
