There is already a plea or a verdict in place, which means that the underlying case is closed. The standard of proof in an open criminal case is beyond a reasonable doubt. Once the case is closed and a defendant is placed on probation, there is no right to jury trial and the judge will determine whether or not the defendant violated his/her probation. Although a probation violation case is a sticky situation, the Florida City probation violation lawyers at DMT can help.

Larry McMillan is the definition of a stand up, hard working, and extremely organized excellent lawyer. He is very direct and a realist on his views of potential outcomes. If ever in any legal trouble hands down Larry is the only lawyer I personally would recommend based on my experience of being a client of his. Thank you Larry for helping me close a 15 year chapter.
Another important thing to understand is that it is far easier for state or federal prosecutors to prove probation violation than it is to convict an individual at trial. When you face a probation violation, you are likely to be held in custody without bond while you wait for a probation violation hearing. During your hearing, your case will be heard by a judge. The standard of proof is different here. At trial, the prosecutor has to prove guilt beyond reasonable doubt. At a probation violation hearing, the prosecution only has to prove the case by a preponderance of evidence. The Florida City probation violation lawyers at Donet, McMillan & Trontz. have the experience, knowledge, and reputation you need when you are facing a probation hearing.
