Preponderance Of Evidence Vs. Beyond A Reasonable Doubt

In a typical criminal case, prosecutors must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant committed the crime he or she is accused of. In probation violations, however, the burden of proof is not nearly as difficult to meet.

If you are accused of violating your probation, prosecutors must only meet the preponderance of evidence standard to obtain a conviction. In other words, they must prove that it is more likely than not that you violated the terms of your probation.

Although this makes prosecutors' jobs easier, it does not mean that a successful defense is impossible. At the Law Offices of Michael H. Schreiber, we are committed to fighting for you during this difficult time. We know that the consequences of a conviction are severe, and we will do everything in our power to protect you.
