  1. What usually happens in these cases were an accused does significant jail time, to only be found innocent?
    Just a sorry about that, and sorry for losing the year of your life?
    Hopefully thereโ€™s some sort of compensation.
    13 months is a long time to be in jail for something you didnโ€™t do.

    1. ” suicide with an audience” , I take it the two innocent people were the audience? And they did nothing to help the person who hung themselves, while I don’t know the exact facts, seems to me they watched and did not help…I think the time served in the slammer is a punishment they deserved for doing nothing.

  2. I donโ€™t understand how 2 people can watch someone take their own life.
    If I were someone in that position iโ€™d Stop it and try my hardest to talk them down and make them realize suicide isnโ€™t the answer..thatโ€™s what someone in their right mind would do…..
