Were supposed to feel sorry for this guy, yeah right. It's obvious that this reporter feels sorry for him. I thought reporters were supposed to be impartial?

Congratulations, Mr. Sharma.
The accuser and the prosecutors had almost ruined his life. What a tragedy it would have been if the innocent person is punished for the crimes he did not commit! He passed the Bar exam inspite of everything because he knew he is innocent and believed in Justice system.

Best wishes to you and your family.
