NORMAN — A Cleveland County jury found former OU Professor Dwain Pellebon not guilty on all nine counts — three counts of child sex abuse and six counts of lewd or indecent proposals to children — on Friday evening. In 2011, Pellebon, 56, was first charged with sexual child abuse. Pellebon’s family and friends reacted to the verdict with emotional sobs and crying.

Pellebon’s attorneys, David Smith and Jacquelyn Ford, said they had faith in the system all along. Pellebon said God was with him the whole time.  

“I’m vindicated but my life is changed forever,” Pellebon said.
