OLATHE, KS (KCTV) – Jurors have found the leader of a Shawnee Christian school accused of inappropriate behavior with students not guilty on all counts.

Dennis Creason, who started and at taught at Oaklawn Christian School, was accused of "lewd fondling or touching" of multiple children under the age of 14 years old in incidents that were alleged to have happened between May 2009 and August 2018.

Creason took the stand in his own defense Monday, saying he has close relationships with current and former students and would not harm them.

His lawyer described the whole case as a "game of telephone" by parents that went terribly wrong.
