Former Skynyrd Drummer Not Guilty

Artimus Powell got the verdict he hoped for Friday (8/28) when a jury in St. Johns County Florida pronounced him not guilty on three charges he faced related to a 1993 plea he entered in a case involving improper sexual contact with a minor.  As a result of the original case, Powell was required to register as a sex offender.  He was arrested for failing to do so in Florida last November when he applied for a drivers license in St. Augustine.  Powell maintained he was still a resident of North Carolina at the time.  The not guilty verdicts on all charges came after less than four hours of deliberation.  Powell attributed the outcome to his fate being "...in the hands of six people that really paid attention."
