What does “innocent until proven guilty” mean?

The phrase “innocent until proven guilty” means that if you are charged with any type of crime, you are considered to be innocent until the prosecution can prove otherwise. Every U.S. citizen has the right to defend him or herself before facing any sort of punishment or conviction. People are allowed a public hearing and proper proceedings with both judge and jury.

For many people it is hard to feel innocent when authorities and others are treating you differently. You can count on Clarksburg defense attorney David W. Frame to defend you and your rights during these times. Contact us today at 800-352-9460 to get an experienced attorney on your side.
