Q: What is the worst that could happen if I violated my probation 1time first felony ever 1 lil mistake in 12months
I failed 1 drug test in my drug consoling class for meth and xanex..the judge agreed to just modify me to do an extra 16classes and they drug tested me again and I had xanex in my system which I tried to explain I had been prescribed them for 10years and for a yr I couldn't afford to pay 350$ to go see him to get more due to a bad car accident I was involved in a yr prior and was hospitalized and my car was totalled and I had a lawyer working on my case hard for a year so I could not afford to go back so I had plenty of xanex saved up b.c I knew I wouldn't be able to work and pay..and the consoler also told my PO I was abusing Subutex when you don't even get "high" off them so how could anyone abuse them..I was prescribed pain meds for 10years due to many many injuries but I made the smarter and better choice to switch to a drug nobody could abuse and wouldn't ruin anyone's life.
A: Believe it or not the court can sentence you up to the maximum allowable by law which for a third degree felony is 5 years, 2nd degree felony 15, 1st degree 30 years and life for a life felony. So testing positive for marijuana could get you prison time. The violation must be willfull and substantial.
