In order to be convicted in Las Vegas, Clark County, Nevada, a person charged with a crime must be found guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. This is a technical term, which applies to all types of criminal cases, misdemeanor, gross misdemeanor or felony charges. It is always the prosecutor's duty (state or federal) to meet this burden of proof. A Las Vegas, Clark County, Nevada, criminal defendant is not required to prove anything. The burden of establishing a person's guilt is strictly the prosecution's burden.

The "reasonable doubt" standard of proof applicable to criminal matters is much higher than the "preponderance of the evidence" standards applicable to civil cases. It is difficult to quantify the real difference, however, the statutory definition found in the Nevada Revised Statutes may help clarify the reasonable doubt standard. Reasonable doubt is one based on reason. It is not mere possible doubt, but is such a doubt as would govern or control a person in the more weighty affairs of life. If the minds of the jurors, after the entire comparison and consideration of all the evidence, are in such a condition that they can say they feel an abiding conviction of the truth of the charge, there is not a reasonable doubt. Doubt to be reasonable must be actual, not mere possibility or speculation. NRS 175.211.
