A Ramsey man accused of sexually assaulting a neighbor girl was found not guilty by a jury Friday night in Anoka County District Court.
Christopher James Olson, 40, of Ramsey, was cleared of all charges in the case, said his attorney, Steven Meshbesher. The jury deliberated for about two and a half hours before reaching a verdict.
According to court documents, Olson was charged with two counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct and one count of third-degree criminal sexual conduct for allegedly sexually abusing the girl, from the time she was about 13 until she was 16. Olson, a pilot for NetJets, a private airline company owned by Warren Buffett, was suspended from his job with pay pending the outcome of the case, Meshbesher said.
The two-week trial began Dec. 3.
