    at the very end

    Quote from CNN:
    Berndt's court-appointed lawyer pleaded with journalists outside court to "not to poison the well" against Berndt in the minds of potential jurors with their reporting. He reminded them of the Duke lacrosse rape case in which three players were accused of sexually assaulting an exotic dancer at a March 14, 2006, party.
    "Everybody was basically guilty in the media and at the very end, when everything was found out, they dismissed all the charges against all of the lacrosse players," Acevedo said.
    He vowed that he would mount a "very vigorous defense" of the former teacher.
    My question is : What does "at the very end" mean?
    Thanks.
