How should I proceed with this CPS case? CPS already conducted a home visit and made me take a drug test at that time.
Hello, thank you for your time. I am located IN Michigan, Gladwin County. CPS has visited me after my baby's menconium tested positive for THC at birth. I tested negative via urine for THC upon delivery. CPS visited my house and conducted a home visit, required me to take a saliva drug test(I know it will be negative for anything), gave me a referral to Community Mental Health I am required to follow up with and asked me to sign a medical record release for myself to show that I tested negative at delivery, I was also told to expect more home visits this month. They told me I would be required to bring my boyfriend in to their office for a drug test(he will also be negative for anything), a family strengths/needs meeting and to sign a saftey plan. How should I proceed from here? Did I already make mistakes by complying?
You may have made no mistakes at all but you could benefit from a consultation with an experienced criminal defense...
Can an etg test be administered at my court appearance/probabtion hearing?
I go to my court hearing in a couple weeks, and I'm wondering if it is possible to be subjected to an etg test that day. The reason I ask is that it is likely that while on probabtion I will not be permitted to consume alcohol, and I'm perfectly fine adhering to this, but I would like to enjoy one last glass of wine with my family the weekend before I go in for sentencing and to find out the details of probation. I can't violate probabtion before it is even issued, right? First offender, owi charge.
It sounds like you've enjoyed enough alcoholic spirits, hence, your problem. If you've been arraigned, then there is...

On bond for a dui and had a drug test the day before my last court date. The court didn't have my drug test results in time but I still violated my bond. would it now be a probation violation or what will happen?
Could have a problem. I don't know the specific facts of the violation but if I did I could be helpful.
