NORTH LAS VEGAS -- For more than two years, a pastor has lived with accusations of sexual assault involving two young men at Revival Temple Church.

On Thursday, Billy McCurdy heard the words he's been waiting for -- not guilty. The charges could have meant life in prison.

The accusations came in late 2010. But then, one of those men recanted to News 3.

The transcript of that interview was read to the jury -- a strange but pivotal part of the case.

McCurdy continues to serve at Revival Temple Church. On Friday, he will be there -- with a different message:

“It'll be jubilee, we can celebrate, our liberation, our freedom,” McCurdy said.

McCurdy says he is happy to move forward but has lost so much -- more than two years of strife and a daughter who, he says, passed away from an overdose as she unable to live with the stress of the trial.
