You Predicted a Conviction

In the Casey Anthony case. Many lawyers and talking heads on TV predicted a guilty verdict. Why? To make themselves feel important. All they did was to embarrass themselves. Our Constitution says Innocent until proven Guilty. No one should speculate, or try to convince me, on the guilt or innocence of a person. I and only I will determine that; I AM THE JURY.
If you now feel that the state lost because all they had was Circumstantial Evidence, don't be too smug. Circumstantial Evidence has the same weight as Direct Evidence.
Note: A judge cannot overturn the finding of Not Guilty by a jury. He may, though, overturn a finding of Guilty if he feels that the state did not meet their burden.
