Stages of proving someone guilty…
Stage 1: Allegations.
Stage 2: Chargesheet.
Stage 3: Trial.
Stage 4: Conviction.
Some are accepted and loved even after Stage 4.
Some today are generally ignored even at Stage 3.
Some are considered squeaky clean and untouchable even at Stage 2.
Some are attacked virulently 24X7 for years even at the sniff of entering Stage 1.
