Nicholas Kasten Found Not Guilty

 A not guilty verdict was returned in a jury trial conducted in Starke Circuit Court Wednesday afternoon.

In just 10 minutes, a six-member jury found Nicholas Kasten not guilty on a charge of Possession of Cocaine, a Class D Felony. Two witnesses were called for the State of Indiana and Kasten, the defendant, was the only witness for the defense.

The trial was held in Circuit Court Judge Kim Hall’s court and only took a few hours to complete. Kasten was charged with the felony in March of this year.
