This chapter discusses some aspects of the Presumption of Innocence (PoI) — a topic to which Ashworth has returned several times in recent years. It focuses on two questions about the meaning and implications of the PoI in the criminal trial: one concerns its implications for the allocation of persuasive or evidential burdens; the other concerns the meaning of ‘innocence’.
