    Yes but the system is still not perfect


    Not taking sides, just that I see some people suggesting that a conviction means the person is guilty and an acquittal means a person is not guilty

    Would say more often than not that is the case but not always.

    The Lloyd Rayney case comes to mind, on the face of it I think most people thought he was guilty. I was not convinced he actually committed the murder, thought it was more likely he arranged it but he went to a trail accused of the murder. Now Lloyd was a barrister himself who had more experience with law than most prosecutors and had defended members of outlaw bikie gangs, need I say more.
