Beyond Reasonable Doubt (BRD)

Beyond Reasonable Doubt (BRD), is often times referred to as "to a moral certainty". It is the highest legal standard of proof in a criminal case or any court trial that must be met by the prosecution in order to certainly and successfully convict a defendant guilty of a crime.

BRD means that evidence is fully established and all the facts are proven. However, this does not mean that there is no doubt as to the accused individual’s guilt, but that based on the evidence presented, there's no reasonable doubt.
