Whittaker acquitted by jury of two child sex offenses

Matthew Clayton Whittaker was acquitted of all child sex charges after four and a half hours of deliberations by a Franklin County jury last week.

The 10 women and two man jury reportedly had a unanimous decision for acquittal on the charge of sexual performance by a child after under two hours. However, the jury reported a deadlock with two for conviction and 10 for acquittal on a second charge. See the rest of this story in the September 7 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
