Mt. Olive teacher found not guilty of sexual battery

A Covington County jury deliberated only 20 minutes Thursday before finding Jarrod Milloy not guilty of sexual battery.

The former Mt. Olive Attendance Center teacher and coach was arrested last summer and charged with sexual battery.

Prosecutors contended Milloy had two sexual encounters with an 8th grade student in 2005.

Court room observers said the girl testified in court and admitted the sexual encounters, but the jury still found him not guilty.
