POMONA, Calif. (AP) -- Former NFL place-kicker Tony Zendejas has been acquitted of drugging a woman at his San Dimas restaurant and raping her.
Defense attorney Timothy Younger says the jury returned its verdict in about 90 minutes in a Los Angeles County Superior Court.
Prosecutors accused Zendejas of raping the woman in January 2008. Younger says his client had consensual sex with the woman after they had known each other for several months.
Zendejas, who retired from the NFL in 1995, faced four felony sex charges. Younger says two of them were dropped on Monday.
Zendejas played for the Los Angeles Rams, Houston Oilers, Atlanta Falcons and San Francisco 49ers.
A message was left seeking comment from prosecutor Rouman Ebrahim.
