Jury finds Boardman man not guilty of raping child

Eric Damore was found not guilty of raping a child.

BOARDMAN, Ohio (WYTV) – The Boardman man accused raping a child was found not guilty of the charges against him on Friday.

Eric Damore was arrested by U.S. Marshals last year after a grand jury indicted him on rape and gross sexual imposition charges. The indictment alleged that Damore sexually assaulted a 12-year-old girl in October 2014.

A jury made its decision after three hours of deliberation.
