Re: Alex Salmond cleared of sex charges

Salmond off the hook..

A jury at the High Court in Edinburgh returned verdicts of acquittal on 13 charges involving nine women with one of the charges being "not proven" which I believe under Scots law his verdict on sexual assault with attempt to rape stops just short of a finding of not guilty but leaves the accused innocent in the eyes of the law.

TBH I thought he was heading for forced isolation and a prime candidate for a lockdown.

Re: Alex Salmond cleared of sex charges

Amazing how many know so much better than a jury that sat through days of evidence and testimony .

Re: Alex Salmond cleared of sex charges

I dont like the man but going by how quickly the jury decided not guilty then it looks like the evidence was (or lack of) quite strong in his favour.

Normally a jury can be out for much longer if they are unsure before they come to a conclusion.

Re: Alex Salmond cleared of sex charges

I don't like the man or his politics but, I think he was stitched up good and proper by the corrupt SNP under Sturgeon. I imagine he will will take some sort of legal action against his accusers in due course.

But it might be missed in this virus panic.

P.S. just found this good review of the outcome here-
