I was arrested for 2 felonies and 1 misdemeanor but it was my first time ever going to jail. I’m worried sick about this because I don’t want to be kicked out of the program and be sent back to trial for all of this.
This is not an employment question. I will change the category to criminal defense so criminal attorneys familiar with Cherokee County can answer you. I can tell that in most pretrial diversion programs you are prohibited from using alcohol or drugs and are subject to random screens. There is a possibility that, since some drugs such as marijuana can stat in your system for 30 days or more, if your first screen is dirty, they will treat that as a baseline and allow you to stay in the program.
Short answer is yes, you "could" be drug tested at orientation, but that is not usually done. If you are really serious about the program, stop using drugs!
