I tested dirty for weed at my probation appointment. I was told the test would be sent to a lab for further testing. It has been over a week and I have not heard anything from the PO or received any notice to appear in court. I am hopeful the results are negative, but would like to know one way or the other. Is the PO required to provide the results to me if I call them?
Criminal Defense Attorney
Although the probation officer is not required to provide the results, you will usually find out based upon whether or not your probation is violated. If you are charged with probation violation you have a right to a contested hearing, at which your attorney can question the probation officer about the test results.
DUI / DWI Attorney
There is no law that requires the PO to provide the results.
Although there may be no "law" that forces the probation officer to give you the lab results, I've never heard of a situation where the probation officer refuses to do so. If you call the probation officer, he or she will likely let you know. The lab can take several weeks to provide the results by the way. If you get a notice of Violation of Probation (VOP), you will have a fairly good idea that the results were not good unfortunately. Best of luck!
