Not enough information is provided in this post----are you in criminal or civil court? If civil, what type case is this? This is necessary information to properly respond---my suggestion is that you consult with a lawyer in your area and discuss the specifics with him. Good luck.

Q: Is it legal for a Texas probation officer to lower the cut off levels on a drug test (UA) for specific probationers?

My Texas probation officer testified in court that he “contacted the ‘lab’ to make special drug tests, set a lower cut-off levels for certain probationers” if he thought abuse had occurred. Is that illegal??

Kiele Linroth Pace answered on Oct 10, 2021

You should always try to stay on your probation officer's good side while at the same time remembering that the judge is actually the final authority on what to do about any alleged violations. It is important to get your own attorney if they attempt to revoke or modify your probation.
