    Potentially, they may prove the charge via indirect or circumstantial evidence which, taken in totality, lead to an irresistible finding of guilt. If they are unable to prove a criminal charge beyond reasonable doubt, then the accused cannot be convicted of that particular charge; whether the accused is eventually convicted of another charge really depends on the circumstances.
