After a day and a half of deliberations, jurors have found Dr. Matthew Sciaroni not guilty of all charges that included molestation and sexual battery. Prosecutors had claimed the Fresno podiatrist gave patients breast exams for no medical reason. One of the alleged victims was a minor.

During the trial, Sciaroni's attorney told jurors these exams were necessary before patients underwent foot surgery.
