Who did the test?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.

My son was on a weekend jail and they tested him when he got there.


Expert:  Lucy, Esq. replied 7 years ago.
If your son is involved in a program where he serves time in jail only on the weekends, he would be on probation during the times that he is not in jail. If he tests positive for drugs once he arrives at the jail, he could be charged with a probation violation. In that case, he might be looking at additional jail time or fines.

The prosecutor could ask the court to order your son to do all of his jail time at once, instead of just on the weekends. However, if he is charged with a violation, he will be entitled to a hearing. If the prosecutor is going to seek jail time, your can have an attorney appointed to represent him.
