The actual verdict was "not guilty". Not "innocent".
The judge was quite clear that the verdict was in no way a statement that the assaults did not take place, simply that they could not be proven to the standard required by law.
Obviously he said 'not guilty' and not innocent... I was just being... well, myself. But yes Mr. pedantic, that is technically what happens.
He said much more too. Like;
"However, the twists and turns of the complainants' evidence in this trial illustrates the need to be vigilant in avoiding the equally dangerous false assumption that sexual assault complainants are always truthful."
Really, 'equally dangerous' ...maybe.
In any case he said many other things... you chose to quote the nicest one.
