Ex-tribal jail deputy acquitted of rape

A former jail deputy on the Spokane Indian Reservation has been acquitted of accusations that he raped an inmate.

A jury found Clifford Arlen Matherly not guilty of two rape charges Thursday in U.S. District Court in Spokane.

Matherly was arrested in June after a grand jury indicted him on charges he raped a woman while she was under his supervision  at the Bureau of Indian Affairs jail in May 2008. He was released from jail pending trial.

The acquittal came after a two-day trial.
