I am on probation for 2 years from a 4th degree DUI. I have been on probation for 5 months now. 2 months ago I got a minor consumption and violated my probation. All my po did was a probation sanction and asked me to follow the terms from my Chem evaluation. I recently moved to a different city and got my probation moved here. Yesterday I received a letter from my new PO and he said he would like to meet and scheduled a meeting for next Tuesday at 2:30. I smoked weed last night and the 2 days before that. Now I am wondering if I have to be expecting a drug test as I am worried sick. Do they have to state whether or not I am coming in for a meeting/test or can they just say a meeting and then go and drug test me when I come in? Will it just be to touch base and get to know each other if all it says is a meeting? Do they need to tell me if I am being tested on Tuesday? I guess I am just nervous to the point that I can't sleep and I feel sick to my stomach as I will not pass a UA if I do end up being tested.
Q: What should you expect?
A: A trip to the pen, unless you shape up.
You got a DUI before age 21, violated that probation within 3 months, got notice of a meeting with your new PO, yet for some reason decided it would be a good idea to smoke weed knowing you might be tested on Tuesday. You should be nervous and sick to your stomach, because you could easily see your second violation, and you're not even quarter through probation.
THC stays in your system up to 35 days. If you are tested within that time frame,you will drop dirty. Time to stop smoking weed and all illegal drugs, and to stop all alcohol consumption as well. If you don't have a job, got one. Follow all the terms of your probation to a "T" Make nicey nice to your new PO, be incredibly remorseful at any subsequent VOP hearings, and hopefully, you will be given an opportunity to make amends, to prove you are still a worthy candidate for probation, and to avoid the penitentiary.
