Charles Hersel, 41, was arrested in November 2009 at a Thousand Oaks mall. Westlake High School students say Hersel paid them to yell profanities, spit and slap his face.
Hersel admitted paying teenage boys to physically and verbally abuse him, but denied there was anything sexual about it.
Ventura County prosecutors said jurors deliberated less than an hour on Tuesday before finding Hersel not guilty on four counts of annoying and molesting a child.
