PETITIONING THE COURT
To modify the conditions of supervision as follows:
1. As directed by the probation officer, the probationer shall participate in a correctional treatment program (inpatient or outpatient) to obtain assistance for drug or alcohol abuse.
2. As directed by the probation officer, the probationer shall participate in a program of testing (i.e. breath, urine, sweat patch, etc.) to determine if he has reverted to the use of drugs or alcohol.
3. As directed by the probation officer, the probationer shall participate in a co-payment plan for treatment or testing and shall make payment directly to the vendor under contract with the United States Probation Office of up to $25 per month.
On April 1, 2009, the probationer submitted a urine sample to the probation officer which returned a positive laboratory test result for the presence of amphetamine/methamphetamine and marijuana (THC).
The probationer was confronted regarding the positive test result on May 6, 2009. The probationer admitted he ingested illegal substances at a party, but added he would have no problem remaining clean and sober. As a measure of good faith, the probationer signed a Probation Form 49 - Waiver of Hearing to Modify Conditions of Probation/Supervised Release or Extend Term of Supervision, and thereby agreed to have his probation modified to require his participation in a formalized substance abuse treatment program, and to participate in a co-payment plan for treatment.
The probationer resides in a remote area and may have difficulty traveling to the formalized drug treatment program under contract with the United States Probation Office. However, the probation officer recommends the Court approve the above indicated modifications with the understanding the probation officer will personally test the defendant as often as possible, and enforce the above requested modifications with good discretion.
Should the probationer continue to find himself at variance from his terms and conditions of supervision, additional Court intervention will be sought.
