I agree with Mr. Jones. It looks like you are hoping someone can give you an okay to smoke marijuana while on house arrest. Consider yourself having been lucky. I have also seen situations in which a person does not get violated on their first marijuana, since it does stay in your system so long. Don't risk it.
As I mentioned before, it can be-but a successful preliminary hearing should not be based solely upon whether it is dismissed or not. You should not continue to post the details of the case online. Instead, sit with an attorney and discuss this in the privacy of his or her office. That is a much better idea than sharing it online.

You should sit down and speak with an attorney immediately. Avoiding issues like this will result in your parole being revoked. Addressing this absolutely necessary. Eventually the PO will find out and lying about it will only result in more problems.
When it is your first test, some POs will attribute that to what was in your system prior to being on probation and therefore won't violate you. Others may. If you have smoked 3 times since June 1, it will be unlikely that it will still be in your system come September. However, you do need to stop completely starting immediately.
I would seriously advise you not to put the details of this altercation on line. There are two likely reasons that you were charged and not her. First, she may have been the one to contact the authorities. This is not clear-but often times the first person to contact the police is considered the victim. Second, although the first situation may not fit-as the man---it often falls on you. What I mean by this is that women are more often the victims of abuse, men are larger, etc. As a result,...
If this is his first offense, I view jail as extremely unlikely (unless the nose was broken, which may make a little more likely). Without a weapon, on his own property, no weapon, no serious injuries etc. I would be surprised by jail time. However, he will receive probation and have a record if convicted. As a result, an attorney is important.
Sure he can be convicted. Innocent people do get convicted in this country everyday. I would advise getting an attorney immediately. Stores like Target often have video tapes. These tapes are often recorded over in about 1-2 weeks, so if the tape can exonerate him-he needs to get them to save the tape immediately.
A PD is rarely incompetent. However, they often do not have the time available that you may want put into your case. Sit down with a private attorney and discuss your case. You may feel more comfortable with a private attorney.
