A careful reading of the trial transcript supports the argument that Titus' guilt was never established beyond reasonable doubt.

Mary Shelley's Frankenstein
I did confess
, but I confessed a lie. I confessed, that I might obtain absolution; but now
lies heavier at my heart than all my other sins. Ever since I was condemned, my confessor has besieged me; he threatened and menaced, until
I almost began to think
that I was the monster that he said I was. Dear lady, I had none to support me;
all looked on me as a wretch doomed to ignominy and perdition
. What could I do? In an evil hour I subscribed to a lie; and now only am I truly miserable."
Tillie Smith (1868-1886)

Notes of a Native Son
the ostentatious parading of excessive and spurious emotion
, is the mark of dishonesty, the inability to feel; the wet eyes of the sentimentalist betray his aversion to experience, his fear of life, his arid heart, and it is always, therefore, the signal of secret and violent inhumanity, the mask of cruelty.

The National Police Gazette - October 16, 1886
Oedipus the King, Part 1
But to condemn me
, on mere suspicion,
Without any evidence!
I can’t endure that!
It is unjust to condemn people with no good reason.
If mere supposition, unsupported,
Is all your evidence, you can call bad men honest
And decent citizens crooks and villains,
And justice will be done to none of them!
A reliable friend is a precious possession,
Worth a man’s life. Throw friendship away,
something living and irreplaceable
The truth of this will emerge in time.
Time is the one incorruptible judge
One minute is long enough
to accuse a man
To prove his innocence takes longer
