Newton County jury finds former Diamond School Board member not guilty of statutory sodomy
The verdict came at the conclusion of a two-day trial.
During the first day, the woman, 20 now but 15 at the time and a friend of Russow's daughter, testified Russow molested her and that she discovered Russow was also having an affair with her mother.
Russow's attorney, Jonathan Pierce, said the woman was lying and members of Russow's family testified things did not take place as the woman said they did.
