Talk:not guilty

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

Legally innocent[edit]

My old Black's (3rd) doesn't have this meaning for not guilty. Their definition of innocent does not have any connection with a verdict (or a plea), so the usage note would be wrong. The other senses for innocent that they have seem closer to ordinary meanings of the word innocent: Acting in good faith and without knowledge of incriminatory circumstances or of defects or objections. Similar for phrases: - agent, - conveyance, - purchaser, - trespass, - trespasser, - woman. DCDuring TALK 17:46, 2 October 2008 (UTC)
