What will happen if I come up positive?
I live in Iowa and am on Probation. Haven't been drug tested yet but my last meeting with my officer is coming up and was wondering what would happen if I come positive in a drug test. She told me to let her know if I slip up so then she won't have to test me but is she trying to trick me?

Could I go to jail for testing positive on a drug test after getting a DUI?
I recently got charged with a DUI. When they took me in I chose to do a drug test instead of having my license taken away for a year. I will test positive for marijuana. So when they find out that, could they place more charges on me? Note: I was taken in for being under the influence of marijuana.

Once he took me there he made blow again which came out to be a .098. He still did NOT give me a DUI or ticket. He just said my license would be suspended for 6 months with a paper saying so. I had no court date nor anyway to explain of my case of just going around the corner to park my car somewhere else. I blew under .08 at the scene so shouldn't that mean something?

Company using Hireright for Criminal Background check. My case fo DUI -fist offence has not reached even pre trial stage.
I was arrested for OWI first offence in november and already had my internship offer in hand. Now the last part of the internship is to get the criminal background check done.

So is it better to go through background check before accepting the deferred judgement or should I accept the judgement and then go through the background check.
The background check will still probably show the arrest without any disposition. The deferred judgment will still...
