dc.description.abstractI discuss two questions about the meaning and implications of the Presumption of Innocence. First, is it consistent with laying either an evidential or a persuasive burden on the defendant at trial? I argue that it can be consistent with laying an evidential burden, once the prosecution proves the commission of what can properly be counted as a presumptive wrong. Second, should we understand ‘innocence’ in this context in purely legal terms, as innocence of what the law defines as an offense; or in more moralised terms? I argue for a strict formal reading of ‘innocence.’en_UK
