Court Referral Office (CRO) Violations
As part of punishment or conditional release from incarceration, criminal offenders in Alabama may be required to submit to regular or random drug/alcohol tests. Or, drug testing may be ordered as part of a preliminary criminal drug or DUI investigation. For those who fail these tests, the consequences can be severe and may include heavy fines or jail time. The legal team at the Shelnutt Law Firm represents people who are facing restrictive sentencing or revocation of parole or probation due to positive test results.
