A jury acquitted a local martial arts instructor accused of molesting
one of his students. Phetsamone Phongsavane clasped his hands together
after he was found not guilty of aggravated sexual assault of a child
and indecency with a child. A 20-year-old woman accused Phongsavane of
molesting her when she was 8. Phongsavane's attorneys say his accuser
had inconsistencies in her story.
"It's been an incredible
strain on him, on his business, on his whole life," said Carl Lobitz.
"Now he's going to be able to get right back to it. He is understandably
quite happy about the jury's verdict."
Phongsavane is still teaching martial arts. If the jury would have convicted him, he faced up to life in prison.

Bush hosts bike ride for military combat veterans
May 24, 2013 08:11 GMT
CRAWFORD, Texas (AP) -- Former President George W. Bush is hosting a 100-kilometer mountain bike ride at his Central Texas ranch for military members wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The second day of the ride begins Friday. This is the third year for Bush to host the Warrior 100K. Last year, the ride was held at Palo Duro Canyon State Park, with the previous year's ride in the Big Bend region of West Texas.
Fifteen wounded veterans of combat in Iraq and Afghanistan are participating in the ride, which is part of the George W. Bush Institute's Military Service Initiative. The institute is part of the George W. Bush Presidential Center at Southern Methodist University in Dallas.
