Re: Probation violation failed drug test

if your original charge was for poss meth, you are looking at a possible 5 years in prison. The probation officer will probably file a violation of probation soon with a warrant for the judge to sign. Typically, the bond will be set at 0.(meaning you will not be able to bond out unless the judge grants you a bond at a later hearing date) I would recommend that you meet with an attorney to review your case in detail and discuss your options in full. My office offers free consultations. Should you want to discuss your situation in greater detail please contact my office.
