If you are on probation or bond, especially if it is for an alcohol or drug related offense, you may be subject to random alcohol testing. Often this will be a standard PBT test, such as the one you may have performed on a roadside sobriety test for example.
However, if you are prohibited by law from drinking alcohol due to certain offenses or legal status, you may be subjected to an EtG testing.
This urine test can detect ethanol alcohol in a person’s body up to 80 hours after consumption of alcohol, depending on metabolism and amount of alcohol consumed. In practice this test is often ordered as a condition of allowing a probationer to leave the state, upon return. Failure can lead to a revocation of bond or probation status. The problem is, this test is so sensitive there is evidence to suggest that even exposure to quotidian chemicals such as hand sanitizers, aerosols, or even cosmetics may trigger a positive result. If you have tested positive on an EtG testing, or any other probation violation you will have a probation violation hearing and could end up in jail or with your probation status revoked. An experienced attorney can represent you at the hearing to present these issues with respect to the validity of the test and others to keep you out of jail and your record clean.
