Will I be drug tested on the day of my 4th court hearing which is probably my last
I was not arrested but charged with a 3rd degree misdemeanor , the court referred me to a counseling program for mental issues and substance abuse. I was admitted. I completed the program. the family affairs woman told me that the program would get my charges dropped. When I go back to court for my 4th hearing in a week, will they drug test me? It should be my last hearing hopefully and I think the judge will drop the case but, will they give me a drug test on that date? I am in Connecticut.

I am a resident of CT and have a CT driver's licence . Got a DUI in the state of Louisiana ( first offense ever , BAC of .12 ) in 2013. Refused breathalyzer test but later accepted giving Blood sample for chemical test. Pleaded no contest => paid court fees + completed community service hours + took required classes => got "motion of termination of probation " from LA court and a letter from NOLA DMV that my license ( driving privilege in LA ) has been reinstated. My attorney in NOLA is working on expungement of the record and expects to obtain such court decision by end of Sep 2014 ( note this is expected to seal the dui records). CT DMV has learnt about the DUI from NOLA DMV through ( Interstate Driver's License Compact).
