MISSOULA - It took jurors only a couple of hours to find suspended University of Montana quarterback Jordan Johnson not guilty of sexual intercourse without consent.
Johnson was accused of raping a woman at her home in February 2012, in a case that has drawn national attention.

We'll have much more on this story as more information becomes available. For a full recap of the decision, watch the 5:30 News on the Montana Television Network.
