RESULTS: “Not true” finding in a motion to revoke felony probation where new sex offense alleged.
Client was accused of a sex offense as a violation of his felony probation.
Through a contested trial before the judge, the judge in the case found the allegation “not true.”
Mr. Blizzard vigorously defended the Client in a lengthy proceeding before the judge, where the burden of proof for revocation is a lower preponderance of the evidence rather than beyond a reasonable doubt.
Still, Mr. Blizzard prevailed by presenting conclusive evidence of coaching by the child’s mother and focusing the Court’s attention on the vagueness of the allegations and timeline.
