Criminal & Civil Burdens of Proof
There are a number of differences between criminal litigation and civil litigation. First, in cases of civil litigation, the plaintiff is the wronged party and not the state. Second, being convicted of a civil offense is far more likely to result in a fine than to result in jail time. Third, criminal trials must be heard by a jury whereas civil trials often take place before a judge alone. For all these reasons, the burden of proof is less for a civil trial than it is for a criminal trial. Whether or not that's an advantage or disadvantage depends upon whether you're the plaintiff or the defendant in your case.
