A Sitka-based Coast Guard petty officer accused of aggravated sexual contact was acquitted during a court-martial.
Petty Officer 3rd Class William Bisel had been charged with two violations of a section of the Uniform Code of Military Justice covering sexual assault.
The Coast Guard says a panel Friday found him not guilty.
