This is a defense lawyer who gets it right:

"What about proof beyond a reasonable doubt? What about the defendant’s presumption of innocence[?]... In the heat of political controversy, the more mundane issues at the core of every criminal prosecution get pushed aside as not sexy enough to make a stink about. The evidence here was legally insufficient to show that Poolaw’s use of meth was the cause of her miscarriage. It may be wildly irresponsible of her to have used meth. It may have been a contributing factor to lack of concern for maternal health of a pregnant woman. But to convict her of a crime requires the elements of the crime be met."
