Congratulations to Jennelle Johnson on a failed Drug Test while on Probation case

Ms. Johnson’s client was on probation.  A term of her client's probation is to not use illegal drugs and to submit to random drug testing.  There was no dispute that such a drug test indicated illegal drugs in Ms. Johnson’s client.  However, Ms. Johnson attacked the evidence of use of the drug.  It was entirely possible that Ms. Johnson’s client was the victim of a ‘date rape’ drug.  In a probation violation case, the judge can decide a person violated a term of probation if the judge decided the defendant 'probably' violated.  After Ms. Johnson completed her case, the judge decided the state could not even prove that Ms. Johnson’s client even ‘probably’ took drugs voluntarily.  Accordingly, the allegation of violation against Ms. Johnson’s client was dismissed.
