  Verdict - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In a criminal case, the verdict is either a "not guilty" or a "guilty" finding, except in Scotland where the verdict of "not proven" is also available.
A verdict of guilty in a criminal case is generally followed by a judgment of conviction rendered by the judge, which in turn will be followed by sentencing.
A verdict is also issued by the coroner at the conclusion of an inquest into sudden deaths: possible verdicts include death by misadventure, accidental death, unlawful killing, lawful killing, suicide, natural causes and an open verdict.

On December 19, 1898, The Verdict, the latest entry in the popular genre of the political cartoon weekly, boldly announced that it would assume the mantle of “spokesman for Democracy.” According to its premier editorial, The Verdict was “...
The Verdict will be a Democrat.” There were good political and financial reasons for the publisher to make such a pronouncement in 1898 because Puck, the Democratic party standard bearer for twenty years, had recently abdicated that mantle.
Given the stated intentions of Belmont and Lewis at the outset of the venture, the fate of The Verdict was tied to the fate of the Democratic Party.

 The Verdict Is In
The majority of verdicts reported in 1992-2001 were in favor of defendants.
