He's been Acquitted!

Evidence against him was very weak, as much i never liked the guy he was rightly acquitted.

He can now sink into oblivion, hope he takes wee Stoogie with him :beer:

What will happen to the woman who accused him of rape, will they get a prison sentence? And be named and shamed?

Ok, He is innocent..... or Not Guilty, the difference,  I'm not sure

 

 

Does this mean there are 9 female SNP members who will do anything for a Political agenda?

No!

Jury obviously decided there was not enough evidence to convict him therefor they believed they had no option but to find him not guilty (which is a better result for Salmond than being found 'not proven' ). Doesn't necessarily mean he didn't do what he was charged with.

You'd give a shit if you got accused of rape and were found innocent, surely?

The trials should not mention names of the alleged offenders until the end!

Which is the problem with these kind of cases......

 

Always a doubt,  damage is done.

 

Maybe for political reasons,  maybe not.

100 %

 

The media went on about Caroline Flack being accused and outed before trial (by them btw)

 

Salmond also, Ulster Rugby Players.....

 

Law needs to protect the accused before trial.

In politics anything goes, it's a tough life.

All the defence has to do is to convince the jury that there is a reasonable doubt.
Guilt or innocence is not in the story.

However, in the event of a not guilty verdict, the accused person then may seek compensation in the civil courts.
I wonder if Wee Eck will go down that road..

I agree but the jury can only accept what the defence/prosecution puts forward dependent on the available evidence.

No, their right to anonymity remains.

The news reports specifically highlighted that.
