Former police officer found not guilty on child abuse charges

A former Moulton police officer was found not guilty Friday on child abuse charges.

Mitchell Breland was accused of abusing two 7-year-olds. He was a Moulton police officer at the time of his arrest.

Both young girls testified this week during Breland's trial. They told jurors Breland struck them repeatedly with a belt after catching them with a cigarette.

The jury heard closing arguments Friday morning before beginning their deliberations and coming back with their verdict just a short time later.
