  1. convict

    To condemn is to pass judicial sentence or render judgment or decision against. We may censure silently; we condemn ordinarily by open and formal utterance. Condemn is more final than blame or censure; a condemned criminal has had his trial; a condemned building can not stand; a condemned ship can not sail. A person is convicted when his guilt is made clearly manifest to others; in somewhat archaic use, a person is said to be convicted when guilt is brought clearly home to his own conscience (convict in this sense being allied with convince, which see under PERSUADE); in legal usage one is said to be convicted only by the verdict of a jury. In stating the penalty of an offense, the legal word sentence is now more common than condemn; as, he was sentenced to imprisonment; but it is good usage to say, he was condemned to imprisonment. To denounce is to make public or official declaration against, especially in a violent and threatening manner.

    From the pulpits in the northern States Burr was denounced as an assassin.

    Coffin Building the Nation ch. 10, p. 137. [Harper & Bros. '83.]

    To doom is to condemn solemnly and consign to evil or destruction or to predetermine to an evil destiny; an inferior race in presence of a superior is doomed to subjugation or extinction. Compare ARRAIGN; REPROVE.

How to use convict in a sentence?

  1. Joe Manchin:

    Schumer said. ROMNEY ANNOUNCES HE WILL VOTE TO CONVICT TRUMP IN IMPEACHMENT TRIAL Republicans had long-predicted a bipartisan acquittal, but the last-minute decision by the three robbed Trump of that talking point. With Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, defecting from his party and voting for guilt on one article of impeachment, it was Democrats who celebrated bipartisanship. The vote created a bipartisan impeachment that can never be erased from history, Schumer said. Democrats touted the party unity and praised the House impeachment managers for making a convincing case. There was a bipartisan vote -- even though it wasnt two thirds -- that found President Trump guilty, Stabenow said. Every single Democrat plus one Republican. On Monday, Manchin took to the Senate floor to push for a lighter measure ofcensure againstTrump and he was considered by Republicans one of their best bets for a defection. For his part, Manchin said he prayed on the decision. CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP This was the most difficult decision Ive ever had to make, Manchin told reporters afterward. This is not a political vote whatsoever. Its not whether I like the president. Ive always had a good relationship [with Trump], but I love my country, and I have an obligation, responsibilities and my duties to my country. And if I cant explain that then shame on me.

  2. Charles Schumer:

    Make no mistake, a trial will be held in the United States Senate and there will be a vote to convict the president.

  3. Fethullah Gulen:

    There is the FETO terrorist organization and the leader is in Jerusalem US since 1999, and he's being harbored there. And he's not a convict. He's not even being detained. And we demand his extradition, and he's not being extradited to us.

  4. Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims:

    This suspect is a prison inmate, a convict, a parole, and maybe that’s where he belongs for the rest of his life.

  5. Greg Sargent:

    Its also odd to hear the argument that no inquiry should happen simply because the Senate probably would never convict, impeachment hearings would be carried out tobenefit the public and the country, and thus cant turn on projections of the ultimate outcome. ...Just asduring the Nixon years, the first step is congressional investigations (which were seeing now), which then might lead to the opening of impeachment hearings. Those would weigh whether newly gathered facts merit impeachment or not, to inform the public of the momentous stakes and complexities involved in this decision.
