    let the man go home and fix supper for the kids, for Gods' sake.
    he has sinned, hopefully he has asked God to forgive him, and if this is the case, his sins are cast into the deepest part of the sea - never again to be thought of or talked about.

    I feel Katherine Eagles is pushing the jury – maybe she is trying to make it to the Supreme Court one day!, can't ride on someones coattails, without them tearing!

    The Justice Dept. should be charged for waisting tax payer money on yet another stupid case. What would it help if he had been convicted.

    Ridiculous jury.

    How much has it cost the taxpayers to put this guy on trial? There was plenty of evidence for any reasonable jury to make a determination of guilt or innocence.
