State v. Sauve
In State v. Sauve, 159 Vt. 566, 621 A.2d 1296 (1993), the judge merely examined the court's files and determined that the defendant would not comply with his conditions of release.
Finding this insufficient, the Court held that findings for a 7575 revocation "must be based on more than affidavits and sworn statements; rather, defendant must have a hearing with an opportunity to present evidence." Sauve, 159 Vt. at 577, 621 A.2d at 1303.
In Sauve, the Court merely held that a hearing must be based on more than affidavits and sworn statements. Id.
The Court have never held that the trial court may not consider a sworn statement if the State has also presented live witnesses.
