'Sometimes, an acquittal can be made if there is no proof or evidence to incriminate the defendant. One such example is Michael Jackson and the 2005 trial.' - surely the 'sometimes' is wrong? If there is no proof or evidence, shouldn't the defendent always be acquitted?
- Sometimes, an acquittal can be made if there is no proof or evidence to incriminate the defendant. One such example is the dangerous pedophiliac Michael Jackson and the 2005 trial.
I think this warrants discussion before re-inclusion. Apart from libellously assuming Mr. Jackson's guilt despite his acquittal, if there is no proof or evidence to incriminate a defendant, it's fairly obvious that this defendant is entitled to an acquittal; the real question is why is he on trial at all?

Beatles Song (not guilty)
I searched for "not guilty" hoping to read about the beatles song by that title. I was redirected here. Maybe something should be done so that "not guilty" has a disambiguation page which links to both the song and this article. Hugzz 02:27, 8 January 2006 (UTC)
Not to mention not guilty is a plea, as well as a verdict 18.104.22.168 03:16, 12 January 2006 (UTC)
If no one is opposed to it, I think I'll make the "not guilty" page a disambigation page linking to the beatles song and also to this article. Lemme know because I'll do it in the next few days if no one speaks up--Hugzz 15:45, 21 January 2006 (UTC)
- Okay I did it. Feel free to hit me up on my talk page if you have anything to say about it, since i'm still somewhat new to this --Hugzz 09:13, 26 February 2006 (UTC)
Is there any word 'clean chit' related to acquittal. In India it is a common word used for relieve from a charge of fault or crime. Anyone has any idea about it? --Avinesh Jose T 05:20, 9 January 2008 (UTC)
This only refers to the decision made; is there an article regarding the fact that "not guilty" can be entered as a plea, or should it be mentioned on this article? ProfessorTofty (talk) 08:54, 14 October 2012 (UTC)
