Augusta man acquitted of child molestation charge

An Augusta man was acquitted of child molestation Wednesday.

A Richmond County Superior Court jury found Steven Sparrow, 40, not guilty at the conclusion of a three day trial.

Sparrow was held in jail for nearly a year while awaiting trial. He was arrested after a young teen reported Sparrow had molested her on Oct. 1, 2011.
