Beaver County Sheriff George David has been found not guilty of all charges filed against him.

While I am obviously disappointed with today’s jury verdict, I respect their decision in this matter. I have been covering the courts for years now and have never seen a juror who hasn’t treated this most serious and solemn process with anything but the attention it deserves.

I want to thank Pennsylvania State Police Corporals Joseph Olayer and Daniel Mosura for their dedication to this case over the past two years — They are good and decent men whose integrity and devotion to justice should serve as a benchmark for others in their profession.

I also want to thank Senior Deputy Attorney General Laurel Brandstetter who has proven herself to be a powerful advocate for the people of Pennsylvania.

I am grateful that when I found myself in need of help I was met by these three remarkable individuals.

Although I did not find justice, this experience has renewed my respect for those men and women who step in front of us when danger arises, who encourage us to follow behind until our journey becomes safe once again.
