Prima facie case

Prima facie case,

Definition of Prima facie case:

  1. When the prosecution (which carries the burden of evidence) terminates its proceedings in a criminal case, if the evidence presented is sufficient to prove guilt, the state's case is considered its case. Otherwise, the defense (which weighs the convincing evidence) may argue that there is no issue to answer and (if the court agrees) the case will be dismissed.

  2. Cases that are supported by sufficient evidence to be considered are proved in the absence of conflicting evidence even after prolonged use.
