Former 509 fitness owner Jason Sleater has been found not guilty of one count of first degree theft and one count of second degree theft, while the jury remained hung on six other counts of theft.

Sleater was accused of charging his gym members a $20 fee aimed at saving the business, and then shortly afterwards closing the gym and pocketing the money. Ahearing will be held a week from tomorrow to determine if Sleater will be re-tried on the six remaining counts.
