Legal Mid-April, the four founders of The Pirate Bay were found guilty of being accessories to breaching copyright law; they aided in breaching copyright of 33 files. As a result, they were sentenced to one year in jail and a 2.75 million EUR fine. However, it was quickly revealed that the judge in the case was heavily biased, and ever since then there's been a search for a judge who is actually not involved with any pro-copyright groups or with the lawyers working for the entertainment industry in this case. Turns out that's actually kind of hard.

Why didn't you just say "But I don't believe that the jury got it right in the OJ Simpson case"? The meaning would have been more clear. And if "Oh, wait..." posts were ever actually funny, surely that ended sometime in the mid 1990s.
