$100,000 Pyramid tournament categories...

I'll post a category that'd likely be on the top rung of Dick Clark's $100,000 Pyramid early in the tournament. You try and think of 3 good clues for it, or 1 awesome clue, then post your own. Remember, it's the tournament, so they should be hard.

 Wow. That's a good one.

"An innocent defendant" comes to mind, but I dunno what else. Truly, that one is so hard (as it should be, tho!) that I just don't see a "magic clue" that paints the picture, they would have to get it by stumbling onto it while rattling off other synonyms.

One i thought of was "A retrialed innocent prisoner". Would that get it perhaps?

 Not sure where "retrialed" adds anything. "Exonerated" simply implies that you were found not to have commited the crimes that you were accused of. Unless I'm missing something, and do educate me if I am :)

Well, exonerate means that you were found innocent. If you are innocent, and you were convicted, and then you were for some reason retrialed, you may be found innocent, or exonerated.

You're right. It is tough, but you have to admit one thing: if they get it, they earned $100,000!

How about this one...

 Would "An acquited prisoner" work, or anything with acquited in the description?

Or is that considered synonymous?

 I'm pretty sure Acquit and Exonerate are the same thing.

Let's not forget the most impossible of all WC categories, "THINGS THAT ARE PERCEIVED".

 The person who mentioned the NCAA basketball had a good idea for elite, I definately would have to go with that, since I have no idea otherwise.

When I saw the category, I tried to think of something that ties to a percival. I dunno if that's right or wrong, though.

 Ya know, I'm not. "Acquitted" is a legal term, whereas "Exonerated" isn't, necessarily. I think that would get through. Might help, too.
