Local businessman and school board member Pat Clements was found not guilty of violating Washington County's social host ordinance, which prohibits adults from hosting parties or providing alcohol to minors.
It took a Washington County jury about 10 minutes to return with a verdict of not guilty and clear Clements in the case charging him with providing alcohol to minors at a party that took place on June 6 of this year.
The verdict was returned at approximately 4:30 p.m. Tuesday afternoon. See a complete story in next week's Springfield Sun.
