Doctor acquitted of 14 sex charges; mistrial declared on two counts
SUPERIOR, Wis. -- A Douglas County jury on Thursday acquitted an Eau Claire pediatrician of 14 sexual assault-related felonies, but failed to agree on two other charges.
The partial verdict came after more than 21 hours of deliberation over three days. Jurors unanimously agreed to verdicts on the 14 charges, but remained hung on the final two counts, prompting Judge Michael Schumacher to declare a mistrial on those charges.
