BIRMINGHAM, Alabama — A Birmingham-area youth pastor has been found not guilty of impersonating a police officer in June 2013.

Matt Pitt was exonerated on Thursday morning. Pitt was accused of using an honorary Jefferson County Sheriff's badge when a man asked about an abandoned rifle in the woods near Pitt's home. Pitt pleaded guilty in 2012 to trying to impersonate a police officer in Shelby County.

Pitt says he plans to continue his youth ministry work at "The Basement," which he founded in 2004.
