I think I'll wait until he goes back to court in the
new year and we find out a little more about why,
suddenly, after thirty years, eight people have
decided (presumably in their late forties) that they
have a cause against him that cries out for either
justice or vengeance, before I assume that 
accusation equates with guilt.  Until then I shall
regard him as innocent until proven guilty.
