Law 101 Continued: So Now You Know

If illegal wrongdoing becomes fully aware to you, you may want to take legal action to expose this wrongdoing for the well-being of others, possibly. In order to do that, you need evidence, and lots of it. How do you know what you need as evidence?

Burden of Proof is your obligation to prove what you accuse others of in a federal court- with the goal being to atrophy the presumption of innocence of who is now the defendant, as you are the plantiff, who is one who brings allegations to the attention to prosecutors.

Your goal is to show a preponderance of evidence that is beyond a reasonable doubt. This evidence should be clear, thorough, and convincing. This is necessary to validate the allegations you have made likely did or are occuring. For example, original documents that show illegal activity in the written form are of more strength than simply vocalizing your allegations. Such documents are acquired in different ways and take many forms. Regardless, the evidence should be overwhelming to establish merit and etiology.

But now that you know some law basics, you know what to look for and acquire, which is why this series continues.

Soon, you will find out what happens next.
