After a seven-week trial, a yoga teacher accused of flashing teenage boys at a Scottsdale bar mitzvah was freed of all charges.
 
33-year-old Lindsey Radomski was arrested in March of last year, accused of getting drunk at the party and letting the boys touch her breasts.
 
She was facing a potential of five years in prison and having to register as a sex offender.
 
After the seven weeks of testimony and racy allegations about Radomski and several boys the night of the bar mitzvah, the jury came back saying they believe her version of the events.
 
Radomski sobbed quietly and hugged her attorneys immediately after the verdicts were read, clearing her of all ten misdemeanors charges of indecent exposure and sexual misconduct.
 
"Miss Radomski suffered. She suffered a loss. Her image was tarnished based on how this story came out," said Radomski's defense attorney, Jocquese Blackwell.
 
The parents who threw the bar mitzvah for their son, in March 21 of 2015, left court without commenting.
 
They employed Radomski at their Scottsdale yoga studio. They also paid $7,000 for Radomski to receive breast augmentation.
 
Some of the charges stem from Radomski allegedly flashing her breasts to adults and boys at the bar mitzvah. Other charges come after the party when Radomski, who testified to drinking several drinks of vodka, tequila and wine was sleeping in one of the boys' rooms.
 
"We believe that the boys went in that room and touched Lindsey, fondled her breasts without her permission," said Blackwell.
 
The prosecutor painted Radomski as the aggressor, but the three man three woman jury did not believe that version.
 
"We have to change the way we look at situations like this. Lindsey was the victim but was treated like the criminal."
 
FOX 10 spoke to the city prosecutor, Caron Close, who says she does not know why the jury did not convict on any charges.
 
She says she presented her best case and the jury made its decision. Close also said she feels terrible for the victims and that her heart breaks for them.
 
As for Radomski, her attorney says she will return to teaching yoga.
