    A jury has acquitted a former Vermont lawmaker in his fourth sex crimes trial.

    Former state Sen. Norm McAllister was accused of setting up his tenant at his Highgate farm to have sex with an acquaintance to pay the tenant’s electric bill. He was initially convicted, but he appealed and the Vermont Supreme Court granted him a new trial.
