Note to world: Alibis are only effective if they correspond to the time of accusation. To say, “The accused was playing darts with me at my house!” as a defense, when the crime for which he was being tried happened two days prior is irrelevant. How infuriating, to attempt to refute the testimony of one man, who witnessed a crime, by stating that in the whole of your experience, you never witnessed the defendant commit a trespass! Again, though a person may have done great things, none can erase the guilt of even a single act of wickedness. No judge would allow evidence of good behavior in a case determining guilt. Reasonable doubt is applied to the trial at hand, and not to the character of the criminal.

To God be all glory.

In the case of a single accuser and a single accused isn't character a valid question? Unless the single accuser is a video camera.

Thought of that. But that's a character witness, not an alibi. And character witnesses don't prove anything. I'm even a little skeptical of them.

Obviously a single accuser doesn't ever establish guilt either.
