CANNELTON – A jury Wednesday afternoon acquitted a 42-year-old Perry County man of rape and other felony charges.
William E. Oliva, who gave police an address of 710 Harrison St., Troy at the time of his arrest, was charged in July after police received a call that he had sexually assaulted and raped a woman in Cannelton.
The trial was scheduled to begin Monday but was pushed back a day due to snow and bitterly cold conditions.
Closing arguments were held Wednesday and the jury deliberated less than an hour before returning its verdict.
