Oakland County, Michigan- I have a friend who had served 30 days in jail for her 3rd DUI. She was then given probation with several stipulations. A condition of her probation was to undergo random drug testing. She was notified through the mail that she had a positive test and a court date was set. It should be noted that she is under doctor's care with valid Rx's that may have contributed. Subsequently, she had her probation revoked and was taken into custody to serve a 5 month sentence. After her test came back positive she took it upon herself to undergo blood tests at a local hospital in order to gather evidence of her innocence. The hospital gave her a clean slate. The judge denied any evidence from being entered and simply revoked her probation. Is there an appeals process which she can undertake, can the sentence be overturned and is there a precedent on the books that will help in her case? Another issue is that her meds require a certain amount of time to decrease dosage as the side effects can be psychologically and physically dangerous. Are jail staff obligated to see that this does not occur? Please help.
