If you are put on probation, do you meet with your probation officer immediately, or does it take a while? Do they do an in-house assessment? Also, there were no drug charges, but will there still be drug tests, how often, and how much are these. This is all through the KAPS program. Thanks for any info.

You should have been given your first appointment date and time in the courtroom once you pled guilty. You will have an appointment once a month and do whatever the judge sentenced you to do and show KAPS proof of that. You will also have a monthly probation fee to pay. No home visits or drug screens unless the judge orders you to have them. I worked for KAPS for a over a year and left in December. Any other questions let me know.

Thank you! I actually have an upcoming court date at the end of this month to do all of the finalization. I know that one of the terms is to pay restitution and they are putting me on probation, but after I complete it and pay everything back, then my record will be expunged. My lawyer called it a diversion or excursion...I honestly can't remember. I'm glad somebody posted back something helpful instead of being so hateful. Thanks again.

You are not in any serious trouble if that is what you are asking. You will not bo ordered to take drug tests. So, go ahead and get high.

I do have to take random drug screens, and I am okay with that. I have quit smoking pot. However, I am afraid that my first initial test may come back dirty. Is that okay? I've heard some people say they want your first one to be dirty so they know what to look for, but none after that. Pot stays in your system for so long that I am certain I will fail the first one. Do I just tell my PO?

It depends on if your PO is a dick or not.

KAPS will give you time to get clean. You will be asked at your first appointment the last time you used. Screens are random but not as often as you think. Every 2 go 4 months is the window but if your sample diluted you will be called back in to give another sample so watch your fluid intake the day of the test. 36 ounces or more 2 to 3 hours before the test could cause a diluted sample.
