Canizales 'Not Guilty' verdict handed downPosted: Updated:
It took two trials, but a former sheriff's deputy charged with raping a co-worker, is not guilty. The jury handed down the verdict in Michael Canizales' trial Wednesday afternoon.
Canizales had to be re-tried because a juror in the first trial lied during jury questioning. It took the jury about two and a half hours of deliberation. Canizales' lawyers say he will try to get his job back.
