"He looks guilty" may be what you are trying to say.
However, the accused person in a court of law never looks guilty. He is instructed by his defence counsel to look like butter wouldn't melt in his mouth.

Gilnetter: 'To say that "he stands accused" means that he has been found to be guilty of some crime.' Izzat so? Here in the UK a person who is not guilty can 'stand accused' of a crime. In a just world, he or she will be found Not Guilty; in Scotland, the case might alternatively be found to be Not Proven.
PS Gil knows. I'm leaving this for the record.
