The words YOU HAVE BEEN FOUND GUILTY are the most devastating words you will ever hear, with the aftermath of looseing everthing wife,family,home etc. How do you cope because to me if you are eventually cleared by miracle the Stigma will always remain. Is there anyone out there who has faced the same problem.
It's something I think about, almost on a daily basis.
It goes without saying that there must currently be, dozens of people wrongly incarcerated. I can only imagine how desperate these folk must feel.
I've recently had a court find against me, albeit in a relatively trivial civil matter. I really don't think I could cope if I were wrongly accused, never mind convicted, of a serious crime.
Unfortunately, I would guess that most people start from the view point that, "there is no smoke without fire".
