Legal Proof is Rational Belief of Guilt
We argue that legal proof is tantamount to rational belief of guilt. A defendant should be found guilty just in case it is rational to believe that the defendant is guilty. Our notion of rational belief implies a threshold view on which belief requires high credence, but mere statistical evidence does not give rise to belief.
