But for a serious answer, I think you’d have to ask a lawyer about the difference between civil law and criminal law. OJ was found not guilty in criminal court but “liable” (or whatever) in civil court.
Beyond a reasonable doubt vs. preponderance of the evidence. In numerical terms, it's 85-90% sure vs. 51%.
