WordNet (r) 3.0 (2005)

n
1: (law) evidence sufficient to warrant an arrest or search and seizure; "a magistrate determined that there was probable cause to search the house"

Merriam Webster's

noun Date: circa 1676 a reasonable ground for supposing that a charge is well-founded

Webster's 1913 Dictionary

3. Rendering probable; supporting, or giving ground for, belief, but not demonstrating; as, probable evidence; probable presumption. --Blackstone. Probable cause (Law), a reasonable ground of presumption that a charge is, or my be, well founded. Probable error (of an observation, or of the mean of a number), that within which, taken positively and negatively, there is an even chance that the real error shall lie. Thus, if 3[sec] is the probable error in a given case, the chances that the real error is greater than 3[sec] are equal to the chances that it is less. The probable error is computed from the observations made, and is used to express their degree of accuracy.
