You are innocent until proven guilty

If you read the Bill of Rights, you will see the phrase "innocent until proven guilty," a concept that has endured since the 18th century. It ensures that any American citizen charged with a crime will receive a fair trial. The founding fathers established a structure meant to keep the government from abusing its power and ensure that individuals receive due process of law. The Constitution sets forth certain protections for anyone accused of a crime as well as requirements that must be met before that person can be convicted.
