Jury selection began Monday for the trial of Amanda Heiman, who faces felony charges for serving liquor to the teen that died in a 2012 crash.

Court papers describe what led up to the crash at 208th Street and West Dodge Road that killed 18-year old Jacob Dickmeyer and seriously injured his friend Colby Burke.

In an affidavit, both Dickmeyer and Burke were carded by Heiman, a server at Fire Barn Bar and Grill. The teens gave Heiman their actual Nebraska driver's license, which showed they were younger then 21.

At least two other employees told Heiman not to serve Dickmeyer alcohol, but she told co-workers she didn't want to tell the teens no.

Investigators said when Jacob Dickmeyer left the bar and got behind the wheel of Heiman's car, his blood alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit. Officials have said the teens drank the equivalent of ten beers and eight shots of liquor.
