Guam's Attorney General, Douglas Moylan, has been acquitted of six misdemeanor charges in the Superior Court.

The Pacific Daily News reports that Mr Moylan had to stand trial after his second, estranged wife filed a domestic violence complaint against him in July 2003.

A Special Prosecutor had filed four charges of family violence and two charges of false statement under oath against Mr Moylan.
