    This is a good question and one you should talk to an attorney in Broward county. I suggest you call Michael Haber.

  • I'm on a drug diversion program i was clean,then i popped dirty on 3rd DT for amphetamines but all i took was amoxicillin

    Which can appear for amphetamines What will happen in court

    William’s Answer

    The burden is on the State but since it is a discretionary program, Mr. Haber is correct in saying that you will have the burden of proving that you took an antibiotic. Do yourself a favor and hire a good lawyer in your area who will fight the fight for you.

    William’s Answer

    It is hard to answer your question here. You will need to hire a lawyer who will prepare a defense and depose all of the relevant witnesses. Usually if people are lying there are inconsistent statements about what happened and a good lawyer can exploit these weaknesses. Regardless you are in a tough fight. Do your research and get someone or a law firm you trust.

    Yes. She can file a police report. She may be concerned because the police will arrest her if there is an outstanding warrant for her. Sounds like a crazy situation and your boyfriend should also be concerned as you are a minor.
