Okay, I'm in the middle of replaying the first Phoenix Wright game and I'm really confused, and not in the normal way that Phoenix Wright is confusing. How is it that Misty Fey is disgraced?

She summons the spirit of Gregory Edgeworth to tell the police who killed him. He lies - or gets it wrong, it's not clear - but he tells her that it was Yanni Yogi who shot him. Yanni Yogi is found innocent due to temporary insanity. Not because it was proved he couldn't have done it, but because he was considered to have committed the act while of unsound mind due to oxygen deprivation. For all anyone knew, Yanni Yogi - mental faculties notwithstanding - was the one who picked up that gun and shot Gregory. (And the fact that he wasn't proven innocent but merely let off the hook for being crazy ruins Yogi's life and is his major motivation for killing Hammond and framing Edgeworth.)

So why does Misty get called a fraud? As far as anyone knew at the time, she was right.
