Jury finds nun not guilty

May 19, 2009 (GENEVA, Ill.) The jury deliberated for just a few hours before reaching the verdict for 24 year old Sister Marie Marot.

About two dozen nuns showed their support for Sister Marot at the Kane County court house on Tuesday. Her trial lasted two days.

Marot was charged with running a red light in a 2007 crash that killed a teenager.

Sister Marot still faces a civil suit related to the fatal crash.
