According to NBC news, Banks has just received a stay of execution. Their story quotes a prosecutor as saying that the defense has never asserted Banks's innocence, which is technically-- and "Orwellianly"-- True enough, technically, i.e., that the quote is an accurate representation of the words of the prosecutor, without mentioning that the content of the quote is blatantly false. The reporter simply says Banks may have been"wrongly accused", never saying may be innocent of the charge, which again, he may be.
