State v. K.B.; Case No. 472016CF000403 (Okeechobee County)
Violations of Probation (VOP) / Miscellaneous Crimes
Okeechobee County Sheriff's Office
Our client was on probation for a drug offense. She tested positive for opioids, violating her probation. We pulled videotape from her workplace showing her eating a bagel with poppy seeds on it, on the very day that her urine test came back positive. Our client continued to self test weekly for two months leading up to her hearing, coming up clean each time. We were able to convince a very reasonable and astute prosecutor that this was in fact a false positive drug test. He dismissed the violation and our client’s probation was terminated successfully.
