No. 702 Please be aware that the Commonwealth has the burden of proof with regard to the new criminal charges, as it does in every criminal case. Don’t underestimate how heavy that burden can be. Assume, in the words of Judge Manning, that Ray Charles (and everybody else) can see that certain documents are [...]
