Former First Minister Alex Salmond charged with a breach of the peace, 2 counts of indecent assault, 9 counts of sexual assault and 2 of attempted rape.

He told reporters outside Edinburgh Sheriff Court that he was innocent of any criminality.

And to think that this was the guy who very nearly brought about the conditions for an independent Scotland.
A malicious prosecution for a crime which never existed. An exposť of egregious malfeasance by public officials.
Indeed, the truth never changes with the passage of time.

No smoke without fire come to mind with these 14 charges.  I fear a Joan of Arc moment coming on.

Not guilty of all charges.

So much for the Moorov Doctrine.

If you read it correctly one charge out of twelve was 'not proven' and in law there is there no legal difference between a not guilty and not proven verdict making for a rather bizarre outcome.

The man has been tried and found Not Guilty and that is an end of it.

It is not in a innocent persons interest that something is left 'not proven'- it is a hellish state of affairs!

I don't think was any real evidence of  his guilt- the jury had no option to find him not guilty for the rest. SO THE NOT PROVEN ONE WAS A SURPRISE TO SAY THE LEAST!
