I understand that the standard of evidence is "the preponderance of the evidence", 51%. I also understand that this takes place in front of a judge and not a jury.
However, is a VOP affidavit enough to get probation revoked? In other words, is the sworn statement of a probation officer alleging a violation enough evidence, or does there still need to be some material evidence, a formal statement taken, and so on? Thanks any advice.
