What do you think are the other scenarios? How might they happen? How can they be avoided?
I think other scenarios could be that JW said things in his confession that may help one of the defendants. I would not say they may be true but the state may not be able to prove those specific things are not true. It could lead to a hung jury or a plea deal if that were to be the case. I do not see anyone being acquitted as you keep saying.
