The reaction in the papers hasn't been very sympathetic to Cheryl Tweedy after her court case.
The judge called it an unpleasant piece of drunken violence.
But what now for Tweedy and the band?
Girls Aloud's record company has said that Cheryl will stay in the band. They told Newsround that they were pleased that she was found not guilty of the main charge of racially aggravated assault.
The new single Jump is out in three weeks. So could the guilty verdict affect its sales?
Pop experts aren't sure. Some think it might put off fans, others think that the publicity surrounding the court case will help sell more records.
So it looks like it will be business as usual for the band over the next few weeks. Even though as they promote their record, one of them now has a criminal record.
