PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- A White electrician has been acquitted of a federal charge of intimidating a Black co-worker by hanging a noose in a work space shared by both men.
Prosecutors alleged that William Gould was angry because his co-worker had been accepted into a management training program for minorities at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
An all-White jury of eight men and four women deliberated for five hours Wednesday before finding Gould not guilty of the misdemeanor charge of interfering with employment by threat of violence.
Gould's attorney, David Kozlow, called last year's incident "a foolish joke."
The co-worker testified that he felt "threatened and intimidated." He declined comment after the verdict.
