MONTROSE, Pa. - A former teacher in northeastern Pennsylvania has been acquitted of charges he had an affair with a ninth-grade student.
Jurors in Susquehanna County found Jeffrey Norris not guilty on 12 of 15 counts against him.
The panel on Thursday did find Norris guilty of wiretapping charges for recording conversations with school officials without their knowledge.
Norris had been accused of having sex with a 14-year-old student from Montrose Area High School in 2007. Investigators also alleged he provided the girl with drugs and alcohol.
Norris refuted the charges from the witness stand. He said after the verdict that he was glad the jury found the truth.
His lawyer, Paul Ackourey, indicated he might appeal the wiretapping conviction.
