    Is my understanding correct?

    Hello Everyone,

    I construe the follow sentence as :

    He was trialed here on the priciple of the presumbion of innocence. However there was sufficient evidence proving that he was guilty.

    The original sentence is:
    "He is here because he was tried and convicted beyond reasonable doubt given the presumbtion of innocence by a jury of 12 people."

    Regards

    Sky

    Your understanding is correct, but you made some mistakes:

    Presumption instead presumbtion

    Principle instead priciple

    You can use the corrector built in your browser. Particularly I recommend Mozilla.

    He went on trial here on the principle of presumption of innocence. However there was sufficient evidence proving that he was guilty.

    By the way, what is the difference between try and convict?

    A person is tried by a court and convicted of a crime if the court's verdict is "guilty".
