Timberwolves owner Taylor wraps up jury duty

MANKATO, Minn. — A jury that included Minnesota Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor has acquitted a man accused of sexually touching a 12-year-old girl.

The Free Press reports the jury deliberated about three hours before acquitting 41-year-old Loren Kyle Hansen of rural Mankato Wednesday night.

Taylor served on the 12-member Blue Earth County jury. The trial lasted two days.

During jury selection, the billionaire businessman said he was on two previous juries — including one for a murder about 30 years ago.
