Coyle school teacher found not guilty of all charges
The defense attorney proclaimed Stacey Brewer was the victim the entire time, and 12 jurors came to the same conclusion after they found a Coyle school teacher not guilty on all charges brought up against him.
Jurors took a total of 90-minutes from being excused to handing down their verdict. Brewer was being charged with six counts of lewd acts and indecent exposure to three female students at Coyle High School.
After her allegations, two other girls came forward with similar stories, saying that Brewer touched or exposed himself inappropriately in his office, the weight room. All three female students testified in the trial.

Brewer, who is currently on paid leave at the school, was facing anywhere between 30 days to 20 years in prison and a fine from $500 to $20,000.
Several jurors told Guthrie News Page following the case, that there was much doubt that Brewer committed the acts that the three female students had alleged as to what had happen. One juror said, “no doubt on all counts”.
The jury foreman told Guthrie News Page that she was very happy with all the jurors that they took the case seriously and ultimately came out with the same opinion. The 12-jurors consisted of 10 white females and two white males.
As each of the six counts were read by the court clerk, Brewer showed little emotion with the exception of closing his eyes after each not guilty was announced. Brewer’s family and friends, an estimated 20 people, were inside the court room as the decisions came down.
The trial lasted a total of five days to go along with two days of jury selections.
