recently released from incarceration from Jefferson county jail after 30 days over a probation violation up for Revocation over failure to report and residency bc of hospitalization due to at risk pregnancy, emergency c section due to high blood pressure issues and preeclampsia, and then infection in large intestines from surgery and then turned myself in to custody to get my daughter home. The judge granted my release but then ordered drug hair folicule test in 90 days even tho no new drug charges, or new cases period. Can judge order new stipulations and tell me if I fail the test he will give me my full 5years with no time served
Yes, the Judge can impose new conditions on your probation. It’s likely the Judge did not revoke your probation because of the birth of your child, but believes if you use drugs while caring for your child, you would be an unfit parent & therefore would revoke your probation. Usually failure to report will result in revocation- the Judge is giving you a chance, whether you take it or not is up to you.
