Do you believe this is true? I have seen many things recently that are exactly the opposite, people are guilty until they prove themselves innocent. Have you ever had an experience like this? What do you think about the statement in general?

I think that's the way it's supposed to work, but sometimes I think it's really the other way around. I've seen cases where it seemed like the person was assumed to be guilty and they were trying to prove they were innocent. I've also seen cases where the prosecution just didn't do a very good job of proving someone was guilty (especially if some of their evidence was considered inadmissible). In those cases, someone was not proven guilty because there was reasonable doubt, and that's the way it's intended to work. I'm quite sure there are people who are innocent that were wrongly convicted, and there are also people who got away with crime because the prosecution didn't have enough evidence or presented their case poorly. Definitely a flawed system in many ways, but hopefully it works more often than not.

No...I dont. Someone stole my DH identity. It was up to him to PROVE his innocence when the man bounced over $600 in checks! It cost US over $1000 to try and prove his innocence and then some IDIOT woman that worked at Autozone TEN YEARS before said she remembered MY dh writing THAT check on ONE sat TEN YEARS before. WTH? I worked retail....there is no way you could have put a check in front of me 10 DAYS later and lined up a group of people and I could have matched it up! He was found guilty. Oh...and so was EVERY SINGLE person in that courtroom that day....what are the odds.....
