CALDWELL -- A Canyon County jury says former Prosecutor John Bujak is not guilty of misusing public funds.

The verdict was handed down around 4 p.m. Friday.

This is the second trial for this case. The first one ended in a hung jury.

The allegations were that Bujak had illegally personally profited from a prosecution contract with the city of Nampa, but today a jury sided with Bujak, bringing back a "not guilty' verdict.

Bujak spoke with KTVB shortly after the verdict and says he is relieved, and this has been two years coming.

He says he's not surprised, but is relieved and thankful for the jury's decision.

There is another case against Bujak related to this one, accusing him of falsifying evidence. That case has been scheduled to go to trial on Sept. 30.
