There is far more to this than conviction or acquittal
It is not the case that "whether the juries convict or not" is the only thing that matters.
It matters a great deal if someone is arrested and detained, has his house raided and searched, all his equipment confiscated, is regarded with suspicion by social workers, is separated from his children, charged and tried. Even if he is acquitted he has still been publicly humiliated and probably lost his job and his family.
I'm surprised that someone who claims to be involved in the justice system would think otherwise.
