PRESUMPTION OF INNOCENCE AND SETTING OF BOND

more+
less-

The presumption of innocence in a criminal law case means just that: you are presumed innocent unless proven guilty. This is true regardless of whatever crime is alleged, e.g., child sexual abuse, murder, sexual battery, robbery, drug trafficking, grand theft, DUI, domestic violence.The accused does not have to prove anything–the burden of proof is entirely on the prosecutor.
