Well, my real question, is what is the likelihood that they will go the fullest extent of punishment, especially, since I know for a fact, that he only ingested the hydrocodone that was prescribed, & nothing more. (narcotics) I'm waiting for a call back from the lab now, but I ant to know what are the chances that they will go all the way with punishment, if the CO, won't accept all the information I have found, showing that these drugs are so similar, & can be metabolized differently by different people. Since the investigator himself even stated on the report that oxycodone & oxymorphone are metabolites of hydrocodone, so that in itself says to me, that they would be present, along with the hydrocodone, after taking them for a week. So, I'm surprised that after that statement, they would even go forward, so I'm trying to find out what to expect. The list of possibilities of NJP, are, 45/45, half pay for 2 mos, reduction in rank, which would lead to discharge, since he's been in for almost 16 years. He's a great sailor, has a great record of service as an HT, and he would never do anything to jeopardize his career, also, absolutely has no access to oxycodone or oxymorphone, themselves. We didn't even know the difference, until we started looking it all up recently. I did tip you after our last conservation, with the assumptiom that it was on top of your fee. Now, since I've looked at other answers you've given to other people, I believe that you can help us. He has an appointment with attorney tomorrow, but I've heard tons about them sugarcoating the outcomes. Also, the cut off in ng, for oxycodone & oxymorphone, is 100, & he tested 352/652. Is that really high or something?
