A pleasant surprise: Today a Catoosa County, Georgia, jury found Tonya Craft, the kindergarten teacher whose prosecution had all the earmarks of a trumped-up molestation panic, not guilty of sexually abusing three girls. I'll have more later.

Previous coverage of the case here.

Addendum: Craft took the stand in her own defense last week. Closing arguments were yesterday, when the jury deliberated for about two and a half hours. It deliberated for another day before reaching a verdict about 4:30 p.m. Some local responses here.
