Terms and Definitions Related To Drinking and Driving.

 

 

 Reasonable Doubt
 

Reasonable Doubt

The definition varies from state to state. Before someone may be found guilty of DUI or DWI, the jury (or judge in those states that do not allow a jury trial for drunk driving cases) must be convinced in the defendant's guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. It represents the highest legal standard in our country; it generally requires an abiding conviction (long-lasting belief) in the truth of each and every element of the charges.
