A former Chicago charter school basketball coach has been acquitted of charges he forced a student to perform a sex act in his automobile and attempted to assault another girl.

Kevin Jones was accused last year of having sex with a female student who played on the boys' team at Epic Academy, a South Side charter school. In addition to the sex act with the 17-year-old girl, he allegedly pushed another 17-year-old girl's head onto his lap after he unzipped his pants.
