Oscar Pretorius

As the trial progresses you can sense that Pretorius will eventually be acquitted, not because he did not commit the murder of his girlfriend but because his smart lawyers will pick holes in the testimony of witnesses and cast doubt in the mind of the judge.

There are so many inconsistencies in the story which are made worse by the inept actions of the police. Contaminating the crime scene followed by changes of testimony by expert witnesses could well earn Pretorius the right to walk free.

Like the trial of celebrities accused of sexual assault in Britain, the outcome may not be down to what is right or wrong but by the skill of the defence lawyer.
