    Question Guilty As Sin

    There was a movie called "Guilty As Sin".
    What does it mean?


    Thanks ;)

    Re: Guilty As Sin

    It means totally and completely guilty, of a crime.

    Sometimes. Guilty as charged is in a court of law, while guilty as sin is not juridical but rather moral.

    Re: Guilty As Sin

    And a person can look as guilty as sin, but I wouldn't use 'guilty as charged' about their appearance, expression, etc.
