LA § 3:3 Reasonable doubt standard

State: Louisiana

Louisiana Criminal Jury Instructions (2017)
§3:3 Reasonable doubt standard

While the state must prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, it does not have to prove guilt beyond all possible doubt. Reasonable doubt is doubt based on reason and common sense and is present when, after you have carefully considered all the evidence, you cannot say that you are firmly convinced of the truth of the charge.
