Oh, yeah. *Laci* deserved a divorce from this piece of trash.

But it is still wrong to convict anyone of anything on this standard of evidence.

The "overwhelming weight" of circumstantial evidence has been used to wrongly convict innocent men who seem to get out of jail almost every month after serving years and years behind bars. In several recent cases the prosecutors have opposed release of factually innocent men just out of sheer spite.

Not so long ago, Judge Lawrence K. Karlton here in Sacramento threatened contempt of court citations against the State of California for refusing to release an innocent man from Folsom Prison.

See above definitions of reasonable doubt. Don't use this case to fight a different battle.
