What will happen if I fail a felony probation drug text?
I smoked marijuana a couple of days before my monthly probation meeting. I got a wonderful surprise in the form of a random drug test. I had just used the washroom before the meeting and told her I wouldn't be able to produce enough urine for the test so she administered an oral test. I had also drank alcohol recently, which I am not allowed to do on probation, and confessed that to her hoping that by admitting she wouldn't do the test. She told me the test didn't check for alcohol and asked if I have an alcohol problem etc. I did not admit to having smoked recently and am sure I probably tested positive for thc. I live with my parents and am unemployed but my father works across the street from our house and told me that he saw a county police officer knocking on our door yesterday (Friday) morning around 8 am. I know for a fact that I was at home but I didn't hear anyone at the door. So the question I am trying to get to is would an officer come to arrest me if I did indeed fail the drug test? I am extremely nervous and my father didn't tell me he saw an officer come to the house until this morning so I can't call my attorneys office to explain and ask until Monday
You can't be certain but there is certainly a possibility that the cop was there to arrest you for a probation...

How can someone be punished before being convicted?
I have a friend who was arrested for possession of drugs. They found the drugs in his moms house, who he lives with and they also arrested her. He admitted that everything was his and willing to accept whatever charges may come and they told his mom she was not being charged with anything. However, she is having to go through the pretrial diversion program anyway. How is this not a violation of rights? Isn't the accused innocent until PROVEN guilty or is that just a fancy phrase? Recently, the mother failed a drug test, so is that the same as probation violation or what repercussions will come from that? How is this not entrapment? I'm not a lawyer so that is why I'm consulting you guys, but in my opinion this is a major overstep of authority and it does not allow for due process.
Let's tackle this piece by piece. This has absolutely nothing to do with entrapment. Essentially, entrapment occurs...
