  1. At a preliminary hearing, the judge must take all evidence in the light most favorable to the prosecution. Whatever your proof is, the judge must have believed that there was some chance that a jury could believe that you could have committed the crime. Because of the standard of proof, it is very hard to win at a preliminary hearing.
