Less than five hours: That's how long a jury on Friday deliberated before finding the former Canyon County prosecutor not guilty of embezzling more than $300,000 in public money.
More than three days: That's how long a November jury deliberated before the first trial ended in a hung jury.
First win: On Jan. 17, a jury found Bujak not guilty of grand theft. In that case, not related to the misuse-of-public-funds case, Bujak was accused of taking $3,780 from an estate in 2009.
What did Bujak say? "This has been such an emotional roller coaster," Bujak said Friday. "When I left court, I did not know if I would be coming home." Bujak said he would spend Friday night and the weekend with family and friends. "I am very thankful. Very thankful."
What's next? Bujak's legal battles aren't over. He has a Sept. 30 trial for allegedly creating false emails to defend himself against the misuse of public funds charge. The first trial on that charge in February ended in a mistrial because Bujak did not disclose evidence to the prosecution.
