I just get the feeling he will get off with it. After being in a jury on quite a complex case and a times getting overwhelmd by legal jargon and sympathetic jurors who had by the time the verdict came had just gave up the will to live .They basically without giving a jot of the truth just stated not guilty. And this is how I can see this ending up. Local hero vs the big London media corporation I can see it coming. On the one hand I hate that news paper but then agian I always thought that the truth should be told and the punishment is weldeserved .
Thank you. And why not.

At the end of the day regardless of Tommy Sheridan's political views or those of any member on HG - in Scots Law, he is innocent until proven otherwise.

The timing here is crucial, if I was a Jury member I would want to have it over by Xmas eve, Sheridan is stringing it out into tomorrow, giving the jury as little time to consider the verdict, in that case I would put my money on him getting off. Even if he is convicted it is bound to go to appeal, which just means more taxpayers money being shelled out on this case.

I know Tommy Sheridan comes across as a bit of a lad, but I think a lot of people are losing sight of the facts.
Sheridan was accused of perjury. Assuming he is innocent - and he is - until proven otherwise, he cannot be blamed for the cost of this trial. I'm sure it wasn't his choice to be charged.

Guilty! which is a bit of a shame as I was hoping he was going to get off with it and stick it to the NOTW.

You having a laugh? A mob out on the street doesn't have the sway of 12 women and two men inside the building. Please stop romancing the issue. Lets look forward to a possible appeal.
