If the the matter is CRIMINAL then the standard the GOVERNMENT must use is “innocent until proven guilty”, but even then, when there is enough credible evidence the accused is detained in jail prior to the verdict. Citizens are free to treat the person as if they are guilty, but need to be careful about defamation.
If the matter is not criminal, then “guilt” is not even at issue so that standard should not be mentioned.
Unfortunately, people like make the error frequently, as you did. Why are you so defensive? You are wrong and I pointed it out to you. You should be thanking me and apologizing for your mistake.
