A D.C. Superior Court jury Friday found 18-year-old Sunny Kuti of Washington not guilty of aggravated assault while armed and armed robbery in the Aug. 18 beating of Thomas C. Maslin. The jury did, however, convict Kuti of being involved in an attack on three men in Adams Morgan about an hour or so after the Maslin attack.

Kuti was one of three men accused of attacking Maslin, who was walking home from a Nationals game. Tommy Branch was previously convicted of participating in the attack and 19-year-old Michael Moore of Landover pleaded guilty.
