I didn't read much about the case but assumed it wasn't going to end well for him, i was not expecting that.


Alex Salmond cleared of all sexual assault charges

Alex Salmond has been cleared of sexual assaulting nine women while he was Scotland's first minister.

A jury found the former SNP leader not guilty on 12 of the sexual assault charges facing him, while another was found not proven.

A further charge of sexually assaulting a 10th woman had previously been dropped by prosecutors.

Mr Salmond had said he was innocent of all the charges against him throughout the two-week trial.

He told the court that the claims made about his alleged conduct were "deliberate fabrications for a political purpose" or "exaggerations".

The jury returned not guilty verdicts on 12 charges and returned a not proven verdict on a charge of sexual assault with intent to rape.

Neither did I. He may have been fitted up as they say for political reasons is the first opinions that are coming out but still shocked with the result.
However unfortunately mud sticks and fear his political career will be hard to resurrect
