How many people do YOU know have been sued in Civil Court after being declared "not guilty" 2
At least one person (1) 50%
More than one person (1) 50%
Yes " 'Virginia' ", there was once upon-a-time in the United States when a person who was accused of committing a crime and subsequently found
"not guilty" by a Jury, he or she was allowed to go back into society and "live happily ever after".
But more often than not, having your "day" in court no longer (regardless of that "not guilty" verdict being handed down)
means a person can breath easier!
Certainly such was not the case for at least two men many of us know or knew:
Robert Blake, born on September 18, 1933 - Died March 9, 2023.
Although found not guilty of killing his wife, he was sued in civil court for every "dime" in had to his name; and subsequently died a slow death.
Robert Wagner, born on February 10, 1930 - Currently still living
Suspected and accused of killing his wife. Although the charges never led to a courtroom trial, the aura of suspicion has followed him to this day.
Although many of us know of the above two actors, how many more individuals do we not know about who have, or will have, suffer from the same fate?
Will YOU be next???
