Yeah his defense could have been better by far.
In this episode as they were in the tunnels some of the metas even commented how a CSI guy killed someone in his own home and left evidence everywhere including on himself.
His lawyer should have pointed out all that during his trial. Surely that would have raised a few questions and some doubt in the jury.
However, even though Barry is out now the fact is that he did spend time in jail and even though the judge has exonerated Barry, cleared him of all charges and set him free, the media did a good job of poisoning the public against him, and his fellow cops also seemed to shy away except for Joe and the Captain.
Now Barry by all rights should be facing some serious P.R./karma problems with his fellow cops and the public in general. While he shouldn't experience OJ Simpson or Casey Anthony levels of hatred I would think that Barry should experience some type of trouble.
Will the police reinstate him? Well the courts did clear him, but surely the cops will have many questions for the fake Devoe and if he doesn't turn up to help the investigation it could look bad for Barry.
The police will likely want to talk to Barry about how Devoe could still be alive.
Also will Devoe's grave be exhumed for investigation or did perhaps Dibney secretly do some "dirty work" as it were and already took care of that? Dibney has done some dirty things such as planting evidence and since Devoe isn't really dead would it really be desecrating a grave?
Or Killer Frost could have dealt with the grave and disposed of the body.
As to Barry, can he walk down the streets now without anyone in the public trying to harass or stalk him or try to confront him?
Frankly I think that even though he and Iris are still newlyweds they should give some thought to relocating to the edge of the city, or perhaps even taking some of the lower levels of Star Labs and making them into a new home.
Also Barry, Wells2 and Cisco and Caitlyn really need to sweep the place for bugs, cameras and revamp their security systems...AGAIN.
Perhaps Wells2 could install some Earth 2 tech into the place? Perhaps that will throw people off?
