We Still Get Google Hits For Alex and Derek King

So anyone interested, check out TalkLeft. Apparently, a judge has set aside the convictions of the two boys, but we are awaiting word as to why.

UPDATE: Here is a NY Times story explaining it. Apparently the judge, who oversaw both trials, had the same question the rest of is did - if the prosecution is presenting two different theories to two different juries, does that not, in itself, suggest reasonable doubt? One is reassured that wisdom comes to us all, one wonders what took so long, and again one asks: is Florida ready for self-government?
