Some days back while watching a trial I saw a defense attorney show a
chart to the jury. It was to illustrate the concept of 'burden of
proof beyond a reasonable doubt'. Basically, the chart showed a man
climbing up a flight of stairs with a burden of proof threshold
written next to each step. Eg., scintilla of evidence - not
guilty',......, 'preponderance of evidence - not guilty', 'proof
beyond a reasonable doubt - guilty'. The aim of the chart being to
convey the message that the burden of proof in a criminal case is very
high. Anyone know where this chart could be obtained or any other
interesting visual to illustrate the concept?
Thanks in advance.
