In law, a verdict is the formal finding of fact made by a jury on matters or questions submitted to the jury by a judge. (see Black's Law Dictionary, p. 1398 (5th ed. 1979) The term, from the Latin veredictum, literally means "to say the truth" and is derived from Middle English verdit, from Anglo-Norman: a compound of ver ("true," from the Latin vērus) and dit ("speech," from the Latin dictum, the neuter form of dīcere, to say).
In a criminal case, the verdict is either a "not guilty" or a "guilty" finding, except in Scotland where the verdict of "not proven" is also available. Different counts in the same case may have different verdicts.

Can you define these popular missing words?
A sucky pop-punk band from West side. They are composed of women, one a Jew, one's an awkward woman, another used-to-be member looks like a terrorist, their singer is a beaner, and their bassist resembles Kim Jong Il. They have unnecessary beef against Chicago Skyline and the Earth. They all drive Hondas and Smart Cars.
*In Korea* LOOK! IT'S THE GUY FROM VERDICTS!
