Judge acquitted of charges of torture and indecent assault after a trial in the state of Georgia.
The case was brought by the victims and was brought against the Judge John Rene Dantzig.
He was also accused of sexual assault and sexual assault.
“We do not believe that we will ever be able to get justice in this country,” Dantwig’s lawyer said.
“The verdict will not be a matter of mercy, it will be a determination of justice.”
Dantzig, a retired judge from the state capital of Gori, has been charged with a total of 16 offences, including sexual assault of children, indecency with a child and abuse of a minor.
The case was referred to the court by the Justice Ministry, which decided to prosecute Dantzog because of his position as a judge.
He is accused of sexually assaulting five children between 1992 and 1996, the same period that he was a judge in the court.
Dontzig denies all the charges and said he would appeal against the verdict.
Georgia has a long history of judicial corruption and the justice system is often plagued by cases where the accused are found guilty, even if they are innocent.
In June, the European Union called for a thorough overhaul of the justice and judicial systems in Georgia, where more than 40,000 people have been jailed since the 2008 civil war that killed President Mikheil Saakashvili.
After the verdict, Dantzie said he will never forgive himself.
“This is not an apology.
This is not a retraction of my crime,” Dontzig said.
