    If there had been no recording, he'd be found guilty. His word against that of a dead girl. Take away the recording, take into account the alcohol and injuries to him, it looks like he tried to rape and or murder her, she fought back and he threw her over the balcony.
    Not necessarily, there would probably have been evidence to show if he had attempted those things and her injuries would be different between falling and being thrown etc.

    But no one would have seriously believe she attacked him

    I must have missed this thread, I've been watching this trial. I agree with the verdict but I don't think he should be left alone and I have no issue with the media hounding him.

    Just because he was found not guilty of murder and manslaughter, doesn't mean he did nothing wrong. It would be interesting to see what would have happened, for example, if he'd been charged with deprivation of liberty (false imprisonment).

    My view? This guy has a serious problem and is a danger to society. I would not be surprised at all if he hurts another girl. Listening to him tell a terrified, drunk girl that he's locking her on the balcony because she's 'been a bad girl' was chilling and speaks volumes to his sense of entitlement and character. Hopefully the media attention means no other girl will allow themselves to be alone with him ever again.

    If anyone is interested, he's sold his story to 60 minutes on Sunday night.

    I don't watch 60 minutes and certainly won't be watching that rubbish. They paid him $150k apparently. I hope all the young girls watch it so they know who he is and stay far away from him.

    What a joke. I only know because I'm watching Harry Potter and it's on channel 9. I won't be tuning in.

    I kind of want to watch it to see what rubbish he comes out with but I don't want to 'support' him being paid.

    did anyone read that post he wrote on an online forum? explaining things from his side?

    it's kind of made me realize there are 2 sides to the story. in no way am I excusing his conduct, he sounds like a very unsavory guy and one I'd warn anyone to keep away from, but he does have his version of events which he wants heard.

    not that I watched it or believe it's morally ok that he's profited out of this series of events when a young woman lost her life.

    Yes I did read it. Such an odd thing to write while waiting on his murder trial.

    There is no denying he is a shady character but I'm sure they both played a role in what happened regardless him profiting from it just seems wrong.

    I can understand why he's doing the interview, if he's going to take the money and give it to his parents. Hiring that QC nearly bankrupted them.
