LAWYER-Y THINGS THE REST OF YOU WOULDN'T UNDERSTAND

Requested by @alimi
  1. The difference between:
  2. Guilty
  3. Not guilty
  4. Innocent
  5. Also,
  6. Proving something beyond a reasonable doubt
  7. Just because someone is found "not guilty" of a crime he is charged with does not mean that he did not physically do some sort of a bad action and actually do the thing
  8. It just means that he is not guilty of the crime charged
  9. I have the hardest time explaining these things to my parents. In theory, it's simple, but really it's not that easy
  10. It's really confusing when you get down into the details of proving things and I think that these are the terms that people have the most trouble understanding
