As @Ouchie should know, the law is based upon precise definitions. No, "guilty" is not a civil equivalent. It has far reaching ramifications beyond mere incarceration that cannot result from a civil verdict.What do you think "liable" means, friend? Paying out damages for fun?
Friend, I know what "liable" means. I am not an internet expert. I actually am an expert, since it has been my profession for 30 years.
