Anibal Acevedo Vila is Innocent

Former Puerto Rico Governor Anibal Acevedo Vila is not guilty on all counts in his corruption trial. The verdict by a jury at the federal court concluded his month long trial earlier today in Puerto Rico.

"I hope Puerto Rico learns from this lesson," said Acevedo Vila after the verdict. "You defend the truth no matter what."

I'm glad because federal authorities didn't have enough proof against the former governor, judging by media reports I heard during the trial.
