The burden of proof is not “beyond all doubt.”

When I explain to my students the burden of proof in criminal cases, I give them the example of a murderer who claims he could not be guilty because at the time he was kidnapped for experimentation by aliens.

Is it possible? Can you prove with 100% certainty it did not happen? No you cannot, so it is possible.
