The second statement is true. Andrew has not been found guilty of anything; he has not been tried; he has not even been charged.

The first statement is false. You are saying that "the things he is being guilty of are not true" ... you don't, know this, nobody knows this, therefore it is not a fact. It is your opinion.
Oh dear, Nice to know pedantry is alive an kicking. Others will judge if I was right in what I was getting at.

No, you were not right in what you were getting at. Your two statements were essentially different - the truth matters.

To point that out is NOT pedantry.

No, what's sad is not knowing the difference between fact/opinion AND not understanding the word pedantry - despite both being explained to you.

Not really. Pedantry is concerned with minor details, the difference between fact and opinion isn't a minor detail.

I couldn't help noticing that the "not guilty" point of your post as applying to Epstein was a technical one. Not a million miles away from pedantry

How strange that the 'truth' appears to matter only to the way I phrased something. The truth regarding Andrew and the fact he hasn't been found guilty of anything criminal is totally ignored.
