A jury in Wayne County has found a man accused of beating a patient at a mental hospital not guilty.

34-year-old James Smith used to work at Cherry Hospital in Goldsboro. He was on trial in Wayne County this week for patient abuse and neglect.

The jury ruled Smith was not guilty of abuse against Dean Smith of Roanoke Rapids. The alleged beating took place at the state facility in 2006.
