UPDATE: A little league who was charged with lewd acts involving a child was acquitted in Cleveland County.

On Wednesday, a jury found Chad Casula not guilty of the charges.


OKLAHOMA CITY - A metro Little League coach has been charged with sex crimes.

Police said Chad Casula is charged with one count of lewd acts with a child.

The charges came after a girl told friends at a birthday party this summer that Casula molested her several years ago.

She told police it happened several times while she was under Casula's care.

She was under the age of 10 at the time of the alleged abuse.

His family denies the charges.

"That's what they are, allegations," David Casula said, Chad's father.

Scott Adams, Casula's attorney, said Casula is in the middle of a custody battle.

"These are false and ridiculous accusations and we look forward to our day in court," he said.
