The Defendant pleaded not guilty. Before the Defendant can be convicted, the State must prove all the essential elements of the offense beyond a reasonable doubt. The fact that the Defendant has been charged with a criminal offense is not evidence and must not be considered by you as evidence. The [Information] [Complaint] merely states the charge in legal form and outlines the issues to be determined by you from the evidence under these instructions. The Defendant is presumed to be innocent unless the contrary, the Defendant's guilt, is proved beyond a reasonable doubt. If the State has not proved the Defendant's guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, you must find the Defendant not guilty.
