    Re: what is the meaning of this sentence?

    It's grammatically correct.

    I've no idea what it means.

    Where did you encounter it?



    A better title would have been
    Suspicion falls short of proof...'.

    Right in terms of grammar? Yes. It means that proof (possibly in terms of evidence, witness testimony etc.) is more reliable than suspicion.
