Hello. My name is***** am a US licensed attorney and I will be happy to answer your question.
I am sorry to hear about this unfortunate situation.
Please note, I cannot comment on your specific situation, as this services is only limited to general information and for any legal advice / legal service you should contact your local attorney.

Generally, a dirty UA is violation of terms of the deferred adjudication and in most cases, a judge will hold a hearing to determine whether to allow defendant to remain in the deferred adjudication program or whether to pursue the criminal charges and hold a criminal trial which if results in conviction can subject the defendant to up to the maximum sentence for the crime prescribed under the law.

So this is a very serious situation, so it is important to consult and retain an experienced local criminal defense attorney (if you don't have one already).

You can find an experienced and skilled local criminal law attorney by using this established and reputable attorney information / referral websites:

www.lexmundi.com
www.martindale.com
www.lawyers.com
www.legalmatch.com
When, choosing a local attorney to represent you, it would be a good idea to choose someone who has a practice exclusively dedicated to criminal law, has at least 10 years of experience and handled similar matters and also regularly practices before the court located in the jurisdiction where your matter might be heard.
I wish you the best of luck!
