A jury acquitted a former high school basketball coach who had been charged with sexually assaulting an underage student, and attempting to assault another.

Prosecutors accused Kevin Jones of using his position to take advantage of the 17-year-old girls.  One of them said she had sex with Jones in a motel, which he denied.

He was found not guilty on Thursday of criminal sexual abuse, aggravated criminal sexual abuse and attempted criminal sexual assault charges.

Jones was a varsity basketball coach at Epic Academy Charter High School on Chicago’s South Side, but he lost his job when he was charged last year.
