Like Bill Murray said in Stripes "Never Convicted"


He said that when asked if he'd ever been convicted of a felony LOL.

But your question is a good one. The absence of a conviction is not necessarily the same thing as not committing a crime.

It's an imperfect justice system - no question, but the presumption of innocence is at the core of our criminal justice system. It's up to the state to prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt. Each case has a life of its own and sometimes certain key evidence is not admissible, etc. Juries can also be unpredictable.
