Cruicable Anticipation Guide Essay 2
IP: 75.216.116.7


The statement I have chosen to write about is “A person is innocent until proven guilty”. I agree with this statement. In this essay I am going to tell you why I agree with this statement, facts about why a person can truly be innocent until proven guilty, and also about the presumption of innocence.
Why do I agree with this statement? Well, because it says it plainly. You can’t say someone is guilty unless it has been proven. What does innocent until proven guilty mean? It is a principle that requires the government to prove the guilt of a criminal defendant and relieves the defendant of any burden to prove his or her innocence.
Can a person truly be innocent until proven guilty? Yes, just look at the facts, especially, the Fifth Amendment. The Fifth amendment if the U.S constitution reads in part “No person shall be deprived of life, liberty, or property with out due process of law”. Which means in plain terms is that constitutionally you cannot be executed, imprisoned, or fined without the proper course of justice taking place.
The presumption of innocence is the burden of proof that lies with who declares, not who denies. This is also the principle of innocent until proven guilty. This principle is a legal right of the accused in a criminal trial. The burden of proof is thus on the prosecution, which has to collect and present enough compelling evidence to convince the trier of fact, who is restrained and ordered by law to consider only actual evidence and testimony that is legally admissible. Also, the accused is guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
I agree with this statement because it has so many facts behind it. Also, because I agree that a person has right to a fair trial, no matter what the circumstances. For instance if it’s some one who works in the courthouse I think they are right to a fair trial. I think to prove someone guilty you should as well have lots of evidence to prove them guilty!
