  •  He was found guilty by a jury. (0+ / 0-)

    He will be convicted by a judge when the judge enters a judgment of conviction.  That will happen after post-trial motions are dispensed with, after a sentencing report is prepared, and after a sentence is handed down.

    •  "Found guilty by a jury" (0+ / 0-)

      is a four word phrase that is a subset of "convicted."  Period.  (There's also "found guilty by a judge" and "pleaded guilty."

      Conviction occurs when any of these three things happen.  Exactly when that happen.  It does not wait for post trial motions, or a sentencing report, or a sentencing.

      Yes, Santa Claus, there is a Virginia. And it's going Democratic.

      •  Have you heard the three-word phrase (0+ / 0-)

        "judgment of conviction"?  That is when a person becomes "convicted" according to the Alaska Department of Law, relying on caselaw from Washington, Oregon and California.

        Insisting you are correct, without providing any citations does not make you correct; it merely makes you sound like a braying jackass.

            I do not have to cite to authority because, unlike you, I am not pressing my own analysis and conclusion.  I am merely reporting on the current official position of the State of Alaska.
