The members of a jury made up of six men and six women deliberated for more than six hours before acquitting a former Emporia chiropractor of sex crime charges stemming from separate incidents occurring in 2015 and 2018. In a phone interview with the Emporia Gazette, defense attorney Chris Joseph thanked the jury for heeding the court’s advice; emphasizing that they could not convict the defendant on any charge if they had reasonable doubt. Joseph added, “I think we had a really good jury that spent a lot of time listening very closely to evidence and struggling with what is a no-win situation for everyone.” See the full story.
