An unusual—and unusually long—trial has ended without charges in Arizona. In the case, a 32-year-old yoga teacher was accused of exposing her newly augmented breasts to a group of seven boys, ages 11 to 15, at a bar mitzvah party, inviting the boys to touch them, and performing oral sex on a 15-year-old. Prosecutors opted not to pursue felony charges given a scarcity of evidence, and Lindsey Ann Radomski was found not guilty on all 18 misdemeanor counts, reports the Arizona Republic. Radomski maintains that she remembers almost nothing from the party, alleging that someone slipped her a date-rape drug.

"In this case, Lindsey Radomski is the one who’s being charged when she was the one who was attacked," argued her lawyer, per the Washington Post. The high-profile trial lasted seven weeks, rare for one involving misdemeanor charges, and Radomski could have faced six months in jail and a $2,500 fine if convicted. “This might be the longest trial that’s ever taken place in misdemeanor court," adds her lawyer, as quoted by 12News. The party was held at her employer's yoga studio and, given the circumstances, the resulting legal charges attracted national and international headlines. "I'm just incredibly happy it's over," says Radomski. (More weird crimes stories.)
