Will I be drug tested as a minor for a non drug related case?
I am on probation for driving without a license and being out past curfew. I met my probation officer the day I was assigned a court date. They haven't drug tested me at all, and it has been a month since I was giving a court date. I have court in a few days and I highly doubt I will pass because it has only been 1 week since I last smoked. Should I be worried about a drug test? My probation officer asked if I ever smoked before and I answered no hoping she won't drug test me. The reason I smoke is because I have serious pain from falling 40 foot down a tree. Causes me severe pain and marijuana helps me when I want to sleep. What is your opinion?
Any person placed on probation has as a requirement that they be of "good behavior" under Virginia law. Generally,...

Drunk in public VA. To plea & pay, or not to?
I have been battling alcohol issues for years. I have a DUI 2007, and a handful of drunk in public's since. I recently voluntarily medically checked into an Intensive Outpatient Program in a facility over 45 hrs completed. I am wondering if I should just pay the fine and move on or attempt to see if the Judge would possibly dismiss the charge because I am getting my life in order. I am aware of the ramifications of both. I am a former police officer, so I am completely aware of what the situation looks like on paper. I am trying to get a job and am inquiring to see if "yet another" DIP charge would really matter. My inclination is to say "F" it and just pay the fine. If there is any way this could be rectified w/o being "guilty" would be ideal. Any thoughts are greatly appreciated.
I don't know how many DIPs you have, but I think you are underestimating the power of an individual seeking recovery...
I have 4 duis. 2 in virginia and 2 in north carolina?
In 2006 4 days before my 21st birthday. I got a dui in north carolina. The cop had to turn around and by the time I knew what was going on I was out of my vehicle. One foot in the gas station but turned around to find out why he was behind me. He made me get back into my vehicle and proceeded to give me a dui blowing a .03. I never went to court for it. Later in 2006 i got a dui in virginia. I was given a provisional licenses to drive back and forth to work and vasap. In 2007 while on the provisional I got my 2nd dui and was sentenced to 19 days in jail. And licenses suspended. In 2009 I got my last dui in north carolina. I was sentenced to 14 months in prison and rehab. My failure to appear was never brought up at my court appearance. Until I called dmv in 2015 to see what I had to do to get my licenses thats when I found out I had a failure to appear to be taken care of because I had forgotten about it. my question is by the time I get done taking the vasap class twice next year which is what virginia is making me do, how severe of a charge am I looking at for a failure to appear 12 years prior? I am not classified as an habitual offender with none being felonious.
I'm not sure exactly what you're asking, but most Virginia courts will only give you a fine if it's your first failure...
