Law and Order

These days, in addition to the traditional not-guilty and guilty, when handing out sentences courts have a third option: not proven. The standard of evidence required is “proven beyond reasonable doubt” for guilty, but not proven requires only “more likely than not”. The sentence of not proven carries far, far lighter penalties than guilty, but it is very difficult to avoid if there is anything resembling a case against you.
