What does beyond a reasonable doubt mean?

Video Transcription:

Oftentimes, lawyers complicate language. When you hear that a case must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt, what that means is that the evidence presented in court should be sufficient so that an objective person listening to that evidence does not go back and forth in their head about the likelihood of culpability. If at the end of the state’s case, a juror is left with the impression of maybe they are guilty, and maybe they are not, that is reasonable doubt.
