How to use innocence in a sentence?

  1. Senator Paul:

    Yesterday the Saudi foreign minister chose to lecture me on television about the Jamal Khashoggi murder, he said my opinion was based on emotion and speculation and that we should presume innocence for the crown prince. My response to him is that it takes a lot of damn gall for Saudi Arabia, with a dictatorship with 3,000 political prisoners held without trial, to lecture the US on the presumption of innocence.

  2. Lara Yeretsian:

I truly don’t believe he got a fair trial because of all the publicity and all of the emotions and visceral reactions of him having an affair.

  3. Eric Johnson:

    Since the case is pending, Mr. Ausbun maintains his complete innocence of any and all allegations or charges made by the alleged victim.

  4. Thomas Ullmann:

    It's not necessarily based on perception of guilt or innocence.

  5. Jeremy Taylor:
