A: Failing a UA is almost as bad as being re-arrested since it shows you were in possession of drugs. If it’s a drug related crime, drug counseling may be appropriate. Much will depend on the PO recommendation and the sentencing practices of the judge.

A: I agree with the answer above. Also, if he has a criminal defense attorney, he should talk to them and ask what's the best course of action to take.
