From a CNN post on YouTube:
- Morsy, 67, had been on trial for an espionage case when he suffered a heart attack.
A case isn’t a crime.
You’re put on trial for espionage. The accusation, the charge, the trial — all of this constitutes the case.
Morsy was on trial in an espionage case when he died.
A writer goes on trial for using extra words to try to impress us — or out of simple thoughtlessness. That is the crime.
