Three Verdicts

There should be three possible verdicts:

  1. guilty

    guilty beyond reasonable doubt.
  2. not proved

    the accused was probably guilty, but there was reasonable doubt or a technicality.
  3. exonerated

    the accused clearly was not the culprit. The accused is refunded a portion of his legal fees equal to the cost had he used a public defender plus 10% for the inconvenience.
