Still facing charges of attempting to sexually exploit children
EVANSTON — An Evanston man was found not guilty in Third District Court on Wednesday, April 4, on charges of sexual assault relating to an incident that occurred in February 2017.
Sean Wayne Weston faced charges of inflicting sexual intrusion upon someone who he knew or should have known had a mental illness, deficiency or developmental disability such that she did not understand her actions, and of using his position of influence and authority as her personal trainer to cause her to submit to sexual acts.
A jury of seven men and five women found Weston not guilty in the case that centered on Weston’s involvement with a female client who had hired him as a personal trainer. The woman had suffered a traumatic brain injury as a child, which left her with a significant learning disability.
