I am English and in this country I feel sure this case would have been thrown out as unsafe. I have just watched the case on T.V. and can't believe this poor man is still locked up.
For the case to stand up to scritiny in a British court, there would have to be no unanswered questions, it simply would not be enough just to say "we don't know" how the blood from a 4 year old got on the deceased person's hand. How could it be that no DNA was found that belonged to the victim? It beggars belief that with so many unanswered questions, a man can be convicted of murder.
This has put me off ever visiting the U.S.A. If I never visit, I should be in the clear if I am ever accused of a crime in the U.S. (But will I?)
