MORGAN COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

A Morgan County man charged with sex abuse was found not guilty Friday.

Jonathan Minnon was a former counselor at a home for children.

His accuser, an adult, claimed Minnon touched her inappropriately and made sexual remarks during counseling sessions.

The woman said the incidents happened at the Alabama Baptist Children's Home in Decatur. 

Both she and Minnon took the stand during the trial this week. 

Minnon testified that she was the one who made unwanted advances on him.
