* NotProven: ''Apollo Justice'' has this, but it was close before.

to:

* NotProven: ''Apollo Justice'' has this, but it was It always comes close before.to this in the franchise, but this game really emphasizes this flaw of the legal system. Two cases exemplify it the best:
** In the third case, Apollo knows who to accuse but his case hits a wall when he lacks anything concrete enough to get the guilty party to admit to their guilt. The only way he can slam the book on the actual culprit is by having the defendant admit to his own culpability in a different but related crime. The other crime carries a harsh sentence in his homeland but not in Apollo's country, which makes it advantageous to him to confess now instead of being found guilty at a later time. In doing so, the murderer would be revealed as the two were co-conspirators on the latter crime. After threatening to blow the lid on the whole affair, the real guilty party loses it and breaks down.
** In the final case, the murderer has covered his tracks well enough to leave no direct evidence linking himself to the crime, but all the other facts at hand point quite definitively at him. The problem is, the existing court system in place in the series' universe requires either evidence, a confession, or incredibly strong testimony...which is why Phoenix has spent the past seven years working towards the [[TakeAThirdOption re-establishment of a jury system]].
