Update on a June 10 blog post -- defendant offered a deal, went to trial and was acquitted

You can find the updated post here. It includes a link to a relatively detailed news story about the trial and the acquittal.  The defendant was offered a very good plea deal, but turned it down, went to trial and won. 

It's a good example of the proposition that a charge is just that . . . guilt does not exist, legally, unless and until someone has pled guilty or been convicted by a jury (or by a judge in a bench trial).
