Black’s Law Dictionary

tifforo1 says:

There is no such thing as a verdict of “innocent” in a U.S. criminal trial. It’s called “not guilty.”

In addition to the 6-12 person trial juries, there are also 12-person grand juries who are sometimes put in charge of deciding whether there enough evidence to put someone on trial for a major crime (issue an indictment).

tifforo1 says:

“Jail” can refer to any correctional facility a person is locked up in, but usually refers to a county jail. “Prison” usually refers to a state penitentiary. County jails are where people who are accused of a crime or have been imprisoned for a misdemeanor (crime with a maximum imprisonment term <= 1 year), or sometimes those who got a light sentence for a felony, are kept. Penitentiaries are for those convicted of felonies (major crimes). So jail and prison are not quite the same thing.

tifforo1 says:

Ack! I meant to say that grand juries have 23 members, not 12.

flufy85 says:

There is no such thing as a verdict of “innocent” in a UK criminal trial either. It’s called “not guilty.” The sentence can vary, it’s not just just a fine or a custodial sentence!

tifforo1 says:

Oops, I meant to say that grand juries have 23 members.
