Our judicial system definitely got it right this time.

nofitinSG - Are you sure they got it right. Where was the physical evidence? Where was the DNA proving Sandusky did what is alledged? Where are the photos of the events? Why did it take so long for the kids to come forward? Isn't it possible that these kids laying blame on Sandusky are just in it for the $$$$$? Many have already sued Penn St. for financial compensation. So isn't it just about the cash that could be involved? Do you know that, when questioned, eyewitnesses come up with different versions of the same event. Do you know that rules of evidence limits what can be presented in court? And that juries do not always get it right? How many people have been released from prison after years of incarceration because they can now prove innocence?

The jury has heard the evidence and found him guilty, I respect that. These types of cases, where there is not hard evidence, just pure circumstantial cases, always raises flags to me. When it takes years before someone comes forward and all of a sudden many others do, it raises concerns. There is no way to prove the real facts.
