CLARKSBURG, W.Va. (AP) - A Harrison County magistrate has been acquitted of charges of sexually abusing a girl under the age of 12.

Media outlets reports that a Harrison County jury found Magistrate Mark Gorby not guilty on all five counts Wednesday.

Gorby was suspended without pay following his arrest in October 2014. He had served as a magistrate since 1997 and won election in May to a different magistrate seat whose term starts next January.
