The issue is actual the presumption of innocence (innocent until proven guilty) -

...which is a longstanding legal principle that has been re-iterated by the Supreme Court - talkleft.com

The law is worded to presume that the offender is guilty of a greater crime (grand theft) rather than simple petty theft. (It used to be that the dividing line was $1000. I'm guessing that that limit has been inflated to $2000+ now).

BTW - why doesn't Congress tackle the problem head on rather than going through this presumptive route?
