For you that don't know. If you have been told to do drug testing pretrial and are declared as indigent (don't have any money for an attorney) you can ask the judge to waive your drug testing cost because you are indigent. Under Ky law 431.520 #4. Start making the courts pay for what you can not afford! Write the letter up mail it to the court.

If you can afford the drugs they are testing you for, you can afford the test

Not every one that is told to do pretrial drug testing is guilty of anything, let alone drug use.

I'm not sure that you even have to be indigent. People are presumed innocent till proven guilty. Making someone pay for a drug test before they are convicted would be unconstitutional.

Pretrial release is a privilege and drug testing is a condition mandated by the appointed judge. If someone is ordered to comply and does not wish to but signs the paperwork stating they will then they should follow through. PTS has defendants sign not just release forms but a contract agreement to the conditions for release. I'm certain that should they not want to comply the judge would happily place them back in custody. While PTS assumes innocence, the officers are there to supervise the mandated conditions. As a worker in the judicial system I will state first hand that no amount of drug testing will make someone quit if they are truly an addict. They need to be referred for treatment instead. However unfortunate, we live in a state (country) that acts in a way which is reactive, rather than proactive or preventive. Most judges within my district typically only place defendants on rdt conditions if the charge is drug related or if they're repeat offenders with that type of charge in the past. Rarely, very rarely do judges impose that specific condition on those who's alleged offense is violent in nature or another type of offense. If it helps, the state of KY has been discussing hiring one specific drug provider to use that would do testing free of charge to the defendants. How long will this take? Who knows, but they are looking at that as an option.

Sounds like something stupid Samantha would write because she doesn't like taking her drug test but that's what happens when you're a terrible parent. Bahaha
