I think that it is important to respect due process and the fact that some jurors felt that even though is is very possible (and believable) he did molest, they did not have the standard of proof needed to convict beyond a reasonable doubt.

Personally if I were to stand a trial I would like to be able to count on such jurors, for the sake of justice erring on the side of caution.

In a civil suit, with a standard of 51% (preponderance of evidence) things may have been a lot different.
