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 Miami Lakes probation violation lawyers at DMT can help.

Ron L - Miami, FLOctober 20, 2021
Attorney Larry McMillian is an experienced trial attorney with years of tenure as a successful prosecutor in the Miami-Dade State Attorney's Office. Mr. McMillian is well known for his handling of complex criminal cases and his trial experience as well as his knowledge of the court room practice and procedure. Mr. McMillian is an asset to any legal team.
Mr. McMillian's talent goes well beyond his experience as his court room presence and professional demeanor were recently demonstrated, as he was able to successfully mitigate a case from a criminal case to civil citation for a close associate.
Something else to keep in mind is that it is easier for a state or federal prosecutor 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 much different here. During a trial, the prosecutor has to prove guilt beyond reasonable doubt. With a probation violation hearing, the prosecution only has to prove the case by a preponderance of evidence. There are two types of probation violations, substantive and technical. The Miami Lakes probation violation lawyers at DMT have the experience necessary to handle both types successfully. The criminal attorneys at Donet, McMillan & Trontz. have the experience and reputation you need when you are facing a probation violation.
