Isn’t it a crime to claim you haven’t been convicted when you have?

OK, I am not a lawyer and I can find no reference, I am only assuming but I cannot believe it is not a crime to state in public that you haven’t been convicted when you have.

Even if there is no specific crime I would think it is at the very least contempt of court.

If this is a crime then Stevens needs to get his butt hauled before a judge, this man is a lawyer and understands that an appeal is a process that does not change the fact that you have been convicted.

I would like the judge in the case to get this guy back before the bench to explain why he is not in contempt of court or whatever crime applies

[edit]

bmaz tells me stevens is actually right;

Stevens is within the law. A finding of guilt by a jury is not entered as a formal conviction until the time of sentencing.

that’s one fine tooth comb, my bubble is burst
