Group Home Director Found Not Guilty in Sex Assault Case

PANAMA CITY, Fla. - A group home director charged with sexual assault learned his fate Wednesday. 

Bryan Meeder was charged with five counts of sexual battery on a child by a person of familial or custodial authority.

Authorities said in October of last year that he had a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old female student staying in the home. The relationship allegedly continued through her 18th birthday.

After a two day trial a jury found Meeder not guilty on all five counts. 

The battle is not completely over though, Meeder still faces a charge in Washington County stemming from this case.
