Nikcara, as a former prosecutor, you should know that convicted of does not mean actually guilty of, right? How many times did you breath easily getting a plea; because you were sweating taking the case to the box. [I don't mean you personally, because we all know that 1) you never brought a case where there was any doubt of guilt; or 2) if there was any doubt, you weren't concerned because of your superior litigation skills.
