Resumen

CARNEVALI RODRIGUEZ, Raúl  y  CASTILLO VAL, Ignacio. The standard of conviction of reasonable doubt in the Chilean criminal procedure, especially referred to the relevance of a minority vote. Ius et Praxis [online]. 2011, vol.17, n.2, pp. 77-118. ISSN 0718-0012.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-00122011000200005.

The Chilean procedural penal system introduced a new standard of conviction: beyond reasonable doubt. This standard comes from the anglosaxon legal tradition, so it is fairly unknown -and under certain interpretations, inapplicable- in the country, considering chilean link's to European Continental law. Because of this, the following paper strives to provide a different analysis on the standard of evidence used by our lawmakers, bringing it closer to the discussion that should occur in Chile. It also seeks to answer the following question: Is it possible to convict based on the fact that the Court was convinced beyond a reasonable doubt, if there is a reasoned and studied minority vote that finds for acquittal?

Palabras llave : Reasonable Doubt; Minority Vote; Criminal Absolution.
