Matthew Durham Acquitted Of Three Convictions

Posted: Updated:
EDMOND, Oklahoma -

Matthew Durham, the Edmond man convicted of molesting children at an orphanage in Kenya, has been acquitted of three convictions on Tuesday, according to court documents.

In a ruling issued on Tuesday, the judge acquitted Durham of counts 11, 13 and 14, because the government failed to establish that Durham engaged in sexual act with the victim alleged in those counts.

Durham was originally found guilty on seven counts of engaging in illicit sexual conduct in foreign places, and not guilty on eight counts of aggravated sexual abuse of a child, one count of travel with intent to engage in illicit sexual conduct, and one count of engaging in illicit sexual conduct in foreign places.
