BOISE, Idaho (AP) — A former Idaho prosecutor has been acquitted of bankruptcy fraud in federal court.

A Boise jury deliberated about four hours before acquitting John Bujak on Friday. The Idaho Statesman reports the verdict came after four days of testimony on charges that Bujak concealed a high-priced Rolex watch from creditors and lied about it during a personal bankruptcy case.

In four previous trials, all in state court, two juries acquitted Bujak and two couldn’t reach verdicts. Three of those trials related to allegations that Bujak took several hundred thousand dollars in public funds while serving as Canyon County prosecutor in 2009 and 2010. The other concerned an unrelated theft charge involving an estate. Bujak is running for governor as an independent.
