It’s not automatic, especially since the statute authorizes the judges to change the concurrent supervision rules more or less as they see fit. I would start with a conversation with the two probation officers before going to the court.
The criminal statute uses past-tense verbs (was involved) and (discharged duties) therefore, in order to gain a lawful conviction the State must prove the prior conviction in the underlying offense. House Bill 88 made this clear by setting forth the distinguishing characteristics of the criminal... Read more »

They could probably still charge him with the meth. When police are investigating one potential crime and come across evidence of another, they can run with it.

When suspected drugs are sent to the lab for testing it is not at all uncommon for more than one illegal substance to be detected leading to more than one charge.
