I just gave a hot urine to days ago to my probation officer. It was my second visit to him and my first urine test. Will i be arrested for it? Should i just write him an email and confess?
I would not suggest that you confess. But you should get in touch with your PO to ask what will happen as a result of the hot urine. It would be good to discuss a drug treatment program to help you with any drug addiction issues that you have. This is a better alternative than jail. You can also seek counsel to help you with this issue and to advocate that you stay out of jail especially if there is a violation of probation or Gagnon hearing in front of your back judge. Good luck.
How do you know the urine tested hot? DId your PO tell you? Or are you assuming because you know you used? The result is not evidence unless the Probation Office knows the test came back hot. You should wait until you are confronted with the results by your PO. Then what you do will depend upon your rapport with your officer. Some won't violate you for just one hot urine. But it depends. Wait until you KNOW what the result is, and then speak to a lawyer first BEFORE talking to your PO.
