In the state of Connecticut, proving a violation of probation is relatively easy. It is not required to prove the violation beyond a reasonable doubt, only by a preponderance of the evidence. Even if the evidence is gathered illegally, the state may still press charges. In other words, it is very important to have an experienced lawyer on your side if you have been charged with a probation violation.
