Good morning. Is a condition of the probation that they are still subject to random testing?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Well I'm on inactive which means I don't report no more. so randomly she called and left a voicemail saying you have till 3:30 to get here. and it was for a drug screen but why out of no where did she do this when i done nothing wrong. actually in was at work when she left the message.
Criminal Lawyer: CrimDefense, CriminalDefenseAtty replied 6 months ago

Thank you for the reply. She did this if a condition was that you were subject to it. While you did not have to report each month, it does not necessarily mean that you could not be subject to a random UA, to see if there were drugs in your system or alcohol. The terms and conditions of your probation would determine this and if you were working and had no reason to believe you were subject to this and could not just leave, the reporting to the office, should be reset and you should advise her of the same and you would have a basis, for not appearing.

let me fill you in and just say that this p.o. and me have history. she has always been hateful to me well the screen come up positive and she said tell me what you did or I'll send it off and get a warrant when it gets back. I wasn't expecting for it to be dirty and she is very intimidating so I told her I took a pill. when she was putting me back on active she said "I'm just going to put this is your first dirty in 12 months when that is a lie. it was my first one ever since 2015. when my p.o. put me o n inactive he said ij would never have to come back unless I catch a new charge. Well be no longer works there so I just feel like somnething is fishy
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I feel like the would have to have a reason to call me in like someone called in on me or she was gossiping with the treatment I went through staff, bc she is the officer over all the ladies there and me when i was there also, but I feel like if there was a concern protocol would be for the supervisor to call not her she's not my po
Criminal Lawyer: CrimDefense, CriminalDefenseAtty replied 6 months ago

If you are concerned you can contact and speak with a supervisor and see what the issue is here. If you are violated, you can defend this but prior to anything happening, there has to be a legal basis for it.

Yes. Do you have additional questions?

I have a ton. What is your opinion
Criminal Lawyer: CrimDefense, CriminalDefenseAtty replied 6 months ago

If you did not pick up a new charge, the only reason you should be asked to come in and appear and report would be for a UA. This is non-reporting, so to ask you to come in would have to be to submit to that or else it would defeat the purpose of non-reporting.

Right. So do you think that she is harassing me? I could go on and on with the history but when I left I tested myself and it was negative
Criminal Lawyer: CrimDefense, CriminalDefenseAtty replied 6 months ago

If she is abusing her authority and acting outside the scope of her employment, you could file a complaint against her and have her conduct looked into.

honestly I've dealt with her doing these types of things for a while now and I'm afraid if I complain it will make it worse on me
Criminal Lawyer: CrimDefense, CriminalDefenseAtty replied 6 months ago

If you do not want to complain, then you simply need to give in and comply. Of course, once you are off probation this will be over and if you are more than halfway complete, may want to try getting it terminated early

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
