BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The Ravens head of security Darren Sanders, who was accused of a sex offense against a stadium employee, was found not guilty on both counts.

Jurors tell WJZ this was a very tough decision, but they say after just two hours of deliberations there was not enough evidence to convict.

WJZ’s Meghan McCorkell has the latest.

Ravens head of security Darren Sanders  walks out of the court on Thursday after he’s found not guilty on all charges against him,

Sanders was accused of sexually groping a stadium worker at M&T Bank Stadium back in December 2014, who was helping direct him to an elevator.

He was charged with fourth degree sex offense and second degree assault.

Speaking out to WJZ, the accuser stands by her story and says Sanders received preferential treatment.

Today in closing arguments, defense attorneys called the accused a liar and said she’s out for money.

Sanders has been on paid leave with the Ravens since the charges were filed against him.

In a statement to WJZ, The Ravens organization said, “We are delighted with the outcome and we are happy for Darren and his family.”
