They stemmed from events in the mid-1970s when Brent Hawkes was a teacher in Nova Scotia’s Annapolis Valley.
In handing down the verdict, the provincial court judge said he found significant inconsistencies in the testimony of the witnesses.
Originally from Bath, New Brunswick, Hawkes has been senior pastor at the Metropolitan Community Church in downtown Toronto for 38 years.
He was appointed to the Order of Canada in 2007.
