Jury that Convicted Priest Did Not Hear all Evidence

What wasn't allowed which you can read here, isn't necessarily as damning as it seems (with the exception of the S & M/rape allegation).

From Court TV:

The jury that convicted the Rev. Gerald Robinson Thursday listened to 41 witnesses during the three-week trial, but they did not hear every piece of information authorities uncovered in the course of their investigation.

Prosecutors were barred by law from presenting some evidence against the priest. Other information was deemed irrelevant to the murder of Sr. Margaret Ann Pahl or open to too many interpretations to benefit their case. Among the things jurors did not hear.
