I don't know what all has been said so far, but I just wanted to note that, while Hardy was found guilty, at this stage in the judicial process, that outcome was almost a given. The evidence was too strong to not make it past this first stage. Bash the "feminist" judge all you want, but her decision holds absolutely zero weight on appeal, as Hardy gets a new judge, a jury, and a trial de novo. Think of it as a "filtering" process. This first part is to essentially weed out the least meritorious claims--usually the ones where the prosecution's primary piece of evidence [e.g., witness' testimony] doesn't show up to court. I'm not trying to denigrate the legal system here, just a personal observation based on my knowledge of how these things work. This next trial is the one we should all be worried about.
