Massachusetts court officer acquitted of child rape charges

A jury found Dwaine Green, 36, of Boston, not guilty Wednesday of three counts of rape of a child.

ATTLEBORO, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts court officer who had been charged with raping his girlfriend’s teenage daughter has been acquitted.

The Sun Chronicle reports that a jury found 36-year-old Dwaine Green, of Boston, not guilty Wednesday of three counts of rape of a child.

According to court records, the girl was 15 when she reported the alleged assaults to police in 2015.

Green’s lawyer, Kevin Reddington, says his client was suspended from his position as a Taunton District Court officer after his arrest.

Reddington says DNA evidence prosecutors had collected didn’t match Green. He says the jury was “attentive throughout the whole trial.”
