On April 11, 2012, Stacey Ray Brewer was found not guilty of 6 Counts of charges of indecent exposure and Lewd Acts with a minor dealing with 3 teenagers from the Coyle High School. It was a seven day trial that was decided by the 12 person jury of 10 women and 2 men. The verdict was returned by the jury in less than 90 minutes.

Stacey Brewer was the Coyle High School Girls Basketball Coach for 4 years prior to the allegations being made. His Defense team consisted of Attorneys Cheryl Ramsey and James Murray both from Stillwater Oklahoma.

This case was filed over 2 years ago. It appears that the District Attorney's office of Logan County were unable to prove the elements of the charges. The alleged victims indicated that Coach Brewer exposed himself to them and touched one of them when they were fully clothed in an inappropriate manner. In their testimony the alleged victims testified that Coach Brewer never made inappropropriate statements or sexually explicit comments to them. Brewer's defense team insisted that the alleged acts never occurred.

Coach Brewer had many former players and former coaching mentors travel from Wyoming and Colorado to testify in this trial of Coach Brewers impeccable record of coaching and teaching. Former players testified of Coach Brewers dedication to his players and his continuing behavior of always going the extra mile in everything he does for his teams.

Many teachers at Coyle Public School testified in behalf of Coach Brewer. He has a history of serving far and above the normal duty of a teacher and coach. Coach Brewer reputation of going the extra mile by all who know him. He has been on administrative leave with pay since Feb 3, 2010.

The Brewer family, Cheryl Ramsey and James Murray are optimistic that the remaining charges will be dismissed and Coach Brewer will be able to rebuild his life, career and reputation.
