Innocent til proven guilty is for the legal system.2 years ago at this time, the Wisconsin Badgers we’re coming up on a big potential season. Their defense was going to be good of course, but there was a lot of hype around young WR Quintez Cepheus. And boy did he live up to expectations, quickly becoming the Badgers #1 WR.
Then about 15 months ago Cepheus abruptly left the team. After a few days of rumors, Cepheus was charged with two counts of sexual assault. His life was put on hold, his football career has been put on hold, his prospects of becoming a pro have been dramatically altered not being able to practice with the team and he potentially could have made millions.
Lawyers in his case presented closing arguments today. 45 minutes later the jury returned a verdict of not guilty. Less than one hour...
Former Badger receiver Quintez Cephus acquitted of sex assault charges
I don’t know what happened between quintez and these two girls. But we live in a system where everyone is innocent until proven guilty. Peoples lives shouldn’t be ruined just because of accusations.
This guy is a credibly accused sex criminal, there might not be enough evidence to put him in prison, but he wouldn't be in this situation if he behaved himself. He wasn't found "innocent", he was not guilty, which only means the case against him didn't convince the jury.
OJ was found not guilty, so were the 4 cops who beat Rodney King to a pulp.
