onohara_mar3“The judge handed down a verdict of not guilty.”

A verdict in the news is usually a decision by a legal system saying whether someone accused of a crime will be punished or not. If there isn’t enough evidence to prove someone is guilty, they will get a verdict of “not guilty”. “Verdict” can be used in casual English for other judgments. “Here, try these cookies I baked. Well, what’s the verdict? Are they any good?”


ニュースに出てくるVerdict とは、容疑者が罰せられるかどうかについて法律制度が下す評決です。有罪にする為の証拠が不十分な場合は無罪になります。 Verdict は通常のカジュアルな会話にも使えます。「私が焼いたクッキーを食べてみてよ。さあ、味はどう?美味しい?」
