Found "Not Guilty" by a court of law does not equate to "Exonerated", necessarily.

Also, "Assumed innocent until proven guilty" is for the "eyes of the law", and maybe employers. I don't have to stick to that. You'll forgive me, I hope, if I decide not to trust any of the high profile celebrity defendents found "not guilty" by Los Angeles courts.


Also quite related.

The problem is, inappropriate behavior doesn't always translate into breaking the law. I don't think that anyone will argue that what Jacko was doing was socially and morally wrong, but there was not enough evidence to convince the jury that he broke the law, and there were too many questions regarding the money-grubbing families who initially brought the allegations.

We can speculate all we want about what was really going on. We may be right with our speculations. But speculation does not equate hard evidence. And the hard evidence was admittedly too flimsy in this case. All we can hope for now is that Jacko learned his lesson regarding sleepovers with children (unlikely).
