Helio Castroneves found not guilty

All three defendants found not guilty. The jury hung on one count as to Helio... I can't imagine that they would retry it. Congrats to him and his defense team.

Helio takes Seventh!!! Not bad for not being in a car for months.

I know this question may necessitate too detailed a response for easy answering. But I want to put it out there anyway because I genuinely don't know the answer:

In the counts Castroneves was aquitted on, was the jury saying that the government did not have enough of a case to prove what he did? Or were they saying that what he did was in fact not an illegal method of "sheltering" money? I know that's a picky distinction, but I'm honestly curious about it.


As a humerous side note - Word Verification humor: It's asking me to enter "carshi". Cars... and Helio races them. :D
