A quick definition of not guilty:

Not guilty: When someone is accused of a crime, they can say they didn't do it by pleading "not guilty." This means they will go to trial and the people trying to prove they did it (called the prosecution) have to show they did it beyond a doubt. If the jury or judge decides the prosecution didn't prove it, the accused person is found "not guilty." This doesn't mean they didn't do it, just that the prosecution couldn't prove it.

A more thorough explanation:

Definition: Not guilty is a term used in criminal cases. It can refer to either a plea or a verdict. When a defendant pleads not guilty, they are saying that they did not commit the crime they are accused of. This means that they will go to trial and the prosecution will have to prove that they are guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. If the fact finder (usually a jury) finds the defendant not guilty, it means that the prosecution did not meet their burden of proof.

For example, if someone is accused of stealing a car and they plead not guilty, they are saying that they did not steal the car. At trial, the prosecution will have to present evidence to prove that the defendant did steal the car. If the jury finds the defendant not guilty, it means that the prosecution did not prove their case.

It's important to note that a not guilty verdict does not necessarily mean that the defendant is innocent. It just means that the prosecution did not prove their case. For example, if there is not enough evidence to prove that the defendant stole the car, they may be found not guilty even if they actually did steal it.

Idk I doubt they can give you 10k cash, lmao, but who knows!
Others will disagree, but max out a credit card if you have to do so.
It's 10K. Not 100K.

10K at 21.51% interest. Lol

Yeah I would definitely disagree. Without family help when could they realistically pay that off?

If someone can live below the student budget at GULC loans could cover an extra $10K, but Grad PLUS loans still amount to $2 in repayment for every $1 borrowed on a 10-year plan at current interest rates. Not a choice to make lightly.
