A jury acquitted a local martial arts instructor accused of molesting
one of his students. Phetsamone Phongsavane clasped his hands together
after he was found not guilty of aggravated sexual assault of a child
and indecency with a child. A 20-year-old woman accused Phongsavane of
molesting her when she was 8. Phongsavane's attorneys say his accuser
had inconsistencies in her story.
"It's been an incredible
strain on him, on his business, on his whole life," said Carl Lobitz.
"Now he's going to be able to get right back to it. He is understandably
quite happy about the jury's verdict."
Phongsavane is still teaching martial arts. If the jury would have convicted him, he faced up to life in prison.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Houston's Astrodome stadium, New York's old Pan Am Worldport Terminal at Kennedy Airport and Montana's one-room schoolhouses are joining a list of the nation's most endangered historic places.
On Wednesday, the National Trust for Historic Preservation is releasing its listing of America's 11 Most Endangered Historic Places. It includes sites from Maine to Alaska.
The Astrodome was the world's first domed, air-conditioned stadium and was once called the "eighth wonder of the world." On Wednesday, a county board recommended converting the Astrodome into a giant convention center and exhibition space.
At New York's JFK Airport, the flying-saucer-shaped Worldport Terminal helped usher in the jet age in 1960 but has been vacated by Delta Air Lines and faces demolition.
A look at these two places, plus all the others on the list, through photos:
