As quoted in Nancy Grace to Leave HLN After More Than a Decade.  (The New York Times, 6/30/2016)

Nolo's Plain-English Law Dictionary defines presumption of innocence as follows:
One of the most sacred principles in the American criminal justice system, holding that a defendant is innocent until proven guilty. In other words, the prosecution must prove, beyond a reasonable doubt, each essential element of the crime charged.

A book not likely to be in Nancy's legal reference library.
