A Superior Court jury has found 38-year-old Jason Song not guilty of raping a teenage girl, but he was found guilty of possession of methamphetamine.
Song was accused of luring a 17-year-old girl into his truck in 2016, making her smoke meth with him and then sexually assaulting her.
The jury spent most of Thursday deliberating before finding him not guilty on the criminal sexual assault charge.
Song is scheduled to be sentenced on January 31.
In a statement from the Attorney General’s Office prosecutor Lenny Rapadas said “while we are disappointed with the results, we are more disappointed for the victim who had to endure almost three days of facing the defendant at trial.”
“We are very proud of the strength and courage that the victim showed,”said Rapadas.
Song claimed the sex was consensual and that the victim had asked him to smoke meth that day.
Song was defended by attorney David Lujan.
