Can a drug test for Parole distinguish between Hydrocodone and Oxycodone?
I wouldn't worry so much as to whether or not the test can distinguish the two. Rather, I would concern myself with the fact that drug use may be considered a violation of parole and that I better have medical documentation for anything that may show up on the test. Just to add to what was said and to give you a answer since the answer given above was really not a answer but advise. To answer your question, Normally the test is a broad analisys of drugs. They will normally test for Opiates in general and then if you have a positive reading for Opiates in general they will go back and conduct a specialized test to see what type of Opiate it is. So yes they can determine exactly what type of Opiate you took. Hydro or Oxy or any other and they can also determine the amount that you took. But the first test is normally just a broad screen for Opiates in general.
There is a difference between Life in Prison, and Life in Prison without the Possibility of Parole. Life without Parole is just that, until the end of the person's natural life. Regular Life in Prison is 40 years, and then the person becomes eligible for Parole, which does not guarantee that they will be released, only that they will regularly be reviewed by the Parole Board.
Probation is handed down by the judge at trial. It may be in lieu of jail time or in combination with some jail time. The judge will specify restrictions on the offender's activities during the probationary period. Parole is granted by a parole board, after the offender has served some -- or perhaps a lot of -- time. The parole board may consider factors such as the offender's behavior in prison and level of rehabilitation…
How is the enforcement of criminal law a factor in determining who is subject to probation and parole?
In theory, the possibility of parole or probation is an element of motivating rehabilitation. In reality there is no correlation between enforcement of law and the granting of probation or parole. In reality probation is largely granted as a means of moderating the court calendar, and parole is granted on almost an entirely arbitrary basis, but with some attention to prison/facility census.
Can Parole Board base their decision on your involvement in a prior case when making their decision?
Ostensibly, the parole board reviews the particulars of the case for which the convict is serving, his history of incarceration, his past criminal history and conviction record, family and community support, plans for residence and employment while on parole, plans for psychological treatment while on parole, plans for continuing education while on parole, and victim perceptions. In theory, parole is a money game. Is is a cost assessment between leaving the convict incarcerated and the…
Can a parole officer lock you up if you disobey a order that's not even written on your parole terms such not going to go community service?
Yes, a PO can return you to incarceration for disobeying his directives. The PO has full direct supervision of the parolee. As such the parolee is required to do what he is told, when he is told, how he is told--much like while the parolee was a prison inmate. Legally, there is no difference between actual incarceration and parole. Parole is just a change of venue.
Is there a statute of limitations for parole warrants if you were on parole for burglary in Phoenix Az?
Dear Fugitive; I do not know the letter of the law in Arizona. However "statue of limitations" applies to the amount of time between a crime and the subsequent filing of charges in court. If you were on parole, you were already charged and found guilty. If you are on the run from the police, it does not matter that you have eluded them for a long time. The cops don't have a limit on…
When an inmate is taken before the parole board, they can be accepted or denied for parole. When they are placed on parole, the parole board will assign a parole officer to monitor that person. The parolee is required to follow state mandated conditions as well as conditions that are required for their specific crimes.
An offender's parole term cannot be extended, but probation can. It is possible to be discharged from both early, but early discharges from parole are rare. While parole cannot technically be extended by a Parole Officer, it can be extended by the Parole Board, and can effectively be extended by situations that create "dead time" such as time spent in rehabilitation or in custody for a potential violation of conditions.
Every state has a parole board, although it may not be called that. The parole board reviews the cases of prisoners coming up for parole, and also hears/reads the petitions of citizens favoring or opposed to parole. By calling the parole board in your state, you can find out the procedures for filing such a petition, and where it should be sent. You may be able to appear before the parole board to make your…
