I guess when your name is HILLARY you never get convicted!
The decision was made by Judge Felix Catena. Hillary had waived the jury and requested a bench trial.
Garrett’s younger brother, Aaron, burst into tears after the judge announced his decision, while Garrett’s mother, Tandy Cyrus, cried softly. Hillary embraced his attorneys and left the courtroom shortly after the decision was announced.
Garrett had just begun the sixth grade when he was found unresponsive in his Potsdam home in October 2011. Cyrus had dated Hillary for about one year, and the two broke up months before Garrett’s death.
Hillary was arrested several years after Garrett’s death and the case went to trial this September in Canton, New York, a town about 10 miles from Potsdam.
Hillary told ABC News’ Elizabeth Vargas earlier this year, before the trial began, that he’s innocent.
“I have absolutely nothing to do with what has happened to Garrett,” Hillary said. “Why would I even want to hurt a child after having worked with kids for over two decades? It just blows my mind.”
