A jury has acquitted an Arizona woman accused of flashing under-age boys at a bar mitzvah last year and performing a sex act on one of the teens.
Lindsey Ann Radomski (34) was found not guilty on all 18 misdemeanour counts after a seven-week trial.
She cried and hugged her lawyers after the verdict was read by a judge in Scottsdale, Arizona.
"I'm just incredibly happy it's over. Thank God," Ms Radomski said outside the courthouse.
She faced a sentence of up to six months in jail, a $2,500 (€2,225) fine and three years' probation if convicted.
She was arrested in March last year on charges that included public sexual indecency with contact and contributing to the delinquency of a child.
A grand jury refused to indict her on felony charges because of a lack of evidence.
According to police, the yoga instructor invited seven boys aged 11 to 15 into a bedroom at a bar mitzvah and flashed her newly augmented breasts at them.
She reportedly allowed the boys to fondle her breasts and then allegedly performed a sex act on a 15-year-old boy.
However, Ms Radomski said that she was drinking alcohol that night and does not remember what happened.
Her lawyer argued that she was drugged while at the event, and that it was she who actually was the victim and that the boys sexually assaulted her.
Prosecutors said Ms Radomski may well have been drunk at the bar mitzvah, but she still should be held responsible for her actions regardless.
