Not guilty verdict in child molestation trial

May 22, 2007

Albany -- A jury deliberated less than 30 minutes before finding an Albany man not guilty of molesting a four year old girl.  24-year old Jimmy Sherman, Junior stood trial for aggravated child molestation and aggravated sexual battery.

Prosecutors say in April or May 2006 he molested a young family member.

 The defense called several character witnesses from Sherman's neighborhood Tuesday afternoon.  The jury found him not guilty on all three counts.
