Innocent until proven guilty
>Such as innocent until proven guilty and the right to silence.
In American law "innocent until proven guilty" focuses on how your case is presented to the public.
It does not give you the right to simply ignore a subpoena or otherwise stand in the way of a legitimate police investigation.
The contempt citation in an American state court sends you to county lock-up.- not so pleasant a thought if the lock-up is a tent farm in the Arizona desert. - and there you will roast on a spit until the judge says otherwise.
The right to silence doesn't go much farther than what you can be compelled to say - to speak. Your DNA is fair game. The keys to the locker room are fair game.
The geek has an unhealthy obsession with "plausible deniability." It didn't save Nixon and it won't save you.
"Plausible" is for the jury to decide - and the jury doesn't think geek.
