Beyond a reasonable doubt has a well-known meaning. A reasonable doubt is not an imaginary, far-fetched or frivolous doubt. It is doubt based on reason and common sense. It is a doubt that flows from the evidence or absence of evidence. It is not enough for me to believe that the accused is probably or likely guilty. Proof beyond a reasonable doubt is not proof to an absolute certainty. The standard of proof beyond a reasonable doubt falls much closer to absolute certainty than to probable guilt.
