A former Irish rugby international has been cleared of one charge of indecent assault at Antrim Crown Court.
The jury is still considering 13 other allegations of child sex abuse.
David Tweed, 53, of Clonavon Terrace in Ballymena, Co Antrim was charged with sexually abusing two young girls over an eight-year period from 1988.
It took the jury of 10 women and two men five hours to reach a verdict on one count of indecent assault against the first of the alleged victims after a trial which has lasted for more than three weeks.
The foreman told the court jurors had not yet come up with a verdict on the 13 other charges which include gross indecency and inciting indecency.
They will return to court number two tomorrow to resume their deliberations.
Mr Tweed was accused of 14 counts of child sex abuse including indecent assault, gross indecency with a child and incitement to commit an act of gross indecency with a child.
He has denied that anything improper had happened with the girls who are now adults.
His barrister Laurence McCrudden QC has claimed his client had been the victim of a conspiracy.
He claimed the girls' memories had been distorted into dangerous phantoms.
Laura Ievers, QC for the prosecution, said Mr Tweed had used his sporting achievements and position in society to live a lie and she said the claimants had no reason to make up the allegations.
