There really isn't much to say besides good news, and congrats!

Congratulations Chris, enjoy your freedom and we look forward to your return.
I'm sure you have better things to do in the coming days, but spare a moment for the fact a bunch of random strangers on the inter-tubes have spent the past few years working towards your release. I ask you sir, did you think such a thing would happen or could happen?

Congrats! Hopefully Chris will be able to pick up where he left off and lead a very productive and satisfying life. I wish I had some cash to send his way...

Anyways, way to go Chris and everybody that helped in his acquittal!

What more miserable and incredible saga could be imagined, and what stranger odds? A travesty it all was, but now we may rest assured in some kind of justice, and be very, very thankful that the new prosecutor was an honourable man, unlike those before him.

This is awesome news. As soon as Kevin Rudd gives me my stimulus cheque I am sending the money to Chris.

Great to hear that that abortion of justice was rectified. Whether he did it or not, he got railroaded and it was bullshit. Hopefully he'll sue the fuck out of them and be set for life.

I'm tempted to say the legal system has finally worked...but then, it was precisely the legal system that went balls up and got Chris sent to prison. Fuck them long and hard, and congratulations to long deserved freedom.

Congrats.

The system does work (all right, it's in another country but I'm sure it would work here as well, at least some of the time).

Congrats again.

You know what? That is a fucking awesome idea. I can't send all of mine as I do have a couple of small things I'd like to use it for, but its brilliant, the Government pays him...one way or the other. I'll be sure to send along a chunk of that to him.

Seriously, this is epic.

With all the doom and gloom we have been getting on this board recently, its nice to see just every now and again, a ray of light come through...

Congrats Stofsk. It's a total sham that's it has taken this long for the Victorian Justice system to finally pull up its pants and do something right, but it's awesome to hear that you will finally be free. Congrats.

I never knew Stofsk beyond a few chats on AIM back in halcyon days of 2005. Like most here he was just a username on a computer screen. But now he has a name. That name is Chris. And people who were usernames themselves have revealed themselves to be friends coming in his aid. I may never meet any of you but to know that there are real people with hearts and desire to help others behind those avatars and usernames is good to know.



I have to tell you something everything I wrote above is a lie.
