Abstract

This article addresses inferences in criminal cases. It discusses the leading case of County Court of Ulster v. Allen which held that inferences must be rational to be permitted in criminal cases. The Court also held that the rationality of the inference must by determined from the circumstances of each case rather than by assessing the inference on its face.

Keywords: inferences, criminal inferences, County Court of Ulster, inferences in criminal cases, presumptions in criminal cases, FRE 301
