    I know I am in the minority here, and I won't get into an arguement, but the civil case only showed the jury believed he had the money to award to a victim.

    I may be remembering it wrong, but I remember some of the evidence that proved he was being framed was not allowed in the civil trial.

    Hey, the lawyer said that there was a lapse in paperwork. Not an embezzlement. Why do we in society these days convict people prior to knowing all the facts? Whatever happened to innocent before proven guilty?

    Shame on all of you who have already convicted Mike Jones. I'm glad your communistic attitude is still well and good after the cold war.

    Maybe not, but explain the condesending tone....

    Well, maybe it isn't as bad as I first read the thread but I just hate to see someone convicted prior to being proven guilty.

    As for OJ, this is all I have to say. He was proven innocent by a jury of his peers. Whether he did or not is irrelevant, the system proved him innocent.

    See that's the problem with posts on the internet you can't always tell what tone is being implied if any at all. In this thread I don't see any condescending tone at all. No one should be convicted prior to being proven guilty I agree with you, and in this thread no one has done that.

    It's not out of the realm of possibility that Jones is involved, and on the flipside he may have had nothing to do with it. The one thing that looks bad for Jones but does not even come close to convicting him is that he didn't show up for court. Again there could be so many explanations as to why he didn't show, and so many other factors that might not even involve Jones but he could be the scapegoat because it's his charity. In the end he is still innocent until proven guilty.
