My question involves criminal law for the state of: Federal Probation. New York.
I am a college student in New York. I was arrested on a national park with .26 grams of marijuana and sentenced to 2 years supervised probation based on poor performance in pretrial.
After Sentencing I continued to smoke marijuana and failed numerous tests. I was violated and sent to 6 weeks inpatient treatment. This was all my fault for being stupid and thinking that the rules did not apply to me.
Since release from rehab I have not touched a drug and returned to college. My probation was transferred from Conn. to New York, and I am to be randomly urine tested based on the color system, and will be starting an outpatient rehab program soon.
My questions are:
Will the federal urine tests be testing for alcohol in my system? My previous PO never tested for it. I am prohibited from drinking while on probation and while I have abstained from drug use I continue to drink with my friends at school.
What type of alcohol testing does the federal probation office use? With my last PO if the instant strip drug test was negative she just threw out my urine. Will this be the same with a new officer in a new state?
If I am to be tested for alcohol and fail, which I am afraid of, would my officer be likely to violate me?
If I am violated, will i be sentenced in my original court with my original judge or will I be sentenced in New York?
Please help me, I am confused and upset. It may not be worth drinking, but I would hate to forsake my whole college experience because of a dumb mistake with weed.
Thank You so much,
