Everyone is standing. I suppose candidates are entering and being seated.

Nelson says they can sit down.

Bernie up. He will ask group questions.

Can they give both parties a fair trial?

Bernie explains reasonable doubt, asks if they understand.

It is not beyond a shadow of a doubt.

Bernie asks if anyone thinks the burden should be higher, to absolute proof or the like.

Bernardo introduces that the state bears the burden of proving a crime has been committed, beyond a reasonable doubt.  He goes through the legal definition of "reasonable doubt."  He also goes on the presumption of innocence.

Those two messages, presumed innocent, and proved beyond a reasonable doubt, will be repeated many times over the course of the trial; especially at opening, at closing argument, and before the jury is discharged to consider the evidence.

Bernie explains judges instructions and their own common sense should inform the verdict.

They are not to speculate.

The lawyer's questions are not evidence.

Bernie addresses B-35.

He asked B-35 to respond to a hypothetical illustrating that lawyers' question aren't evidence.

They must exclude sympathy and bias.

He picks jurors and asks them to explain in their own words the reasons for his admonitions.

The role of jurors is done with verdict. Judge imposes sentence.

Bernie asked M-75 if she agrees, asks the venire if anyone disagrees.

Bernie uses example of his children breaking into a cookie jar to talk about types of evidence.
