The scales of justice have long symbolized the balance between truth and fairness within the modern-day judicial system. In criminal matters, the balance of the scale is held in favor of the accused based upon the rights granted within the United States Constitution. A person is presumed to be innocent until proven guilty within a court of law. The accused must be granted the ability to confront their accuser and examine any evidence that may be presented at trial. The person must not be subjected to the unreasonable search and seizure of their property nor cruel or unusual punishment. The government’s burden is to present evidence sufficient to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant committed the criminal act for which they have been accused. The weight of the government’s evidence placed upon the scale’s pan must be great enough to move the balance of the scales of justice from a position of innocence for the defendant to a position of guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
