A visiting Ghanaian Catholic priest has been acquitted of sexual assault after a jury found him not guilty in the US.
The Chicago Tribune reports that the 48-year-old Rev. Edmund Donkor-Baine was accused of assaulting a female parishioner in La Crosse County, but the jury found him not guilty of misdemeanour.
The 48-year-old woman was reported to have sought marriage counselling from him. The priest however, said it was the woman who made sexual advances to him.
