Assunto:  Presumed innocent until proven guilty
 
Mensagem:  No. Your proposition undubitably unmerits any dismissal.  "Culpado(a) até prova em contrário," however, appears more commonly used, the "em contrário" part accessorily appearing as a fixed idiom as most Portuguese dictionaries would have it.

"presumed guilty until proven innocent" - Google 10,200
"presumed innocent until proven guilty" - Google 46,400

The English still reads differently from the Portuguese, their respective penal codes notwithstanding.
