Jury verdict in Michael Brown assault case: Not guilty
After several hours and a second morning of deliberations, the jury in the trial of Michael Brown has found him not guilty of the charge of assault on a family member.
The verdict was read to the packed courtroom just after 10 a.m. on Tuesday morning after a week of testimony. Brown, who had remained impassive throughout the trial, responded to the verdict by hugging attorneys Dick DeGuerin and Brian Wice.
While Brown's criminal charges are out of the way, the divorce case between Michael and Rachel Brown is set to be equally explosive and scheduled for later this year.
