Sometimes in Texas, judges will require that a defendant submits to a drug test by the way of a urine sample. In Harris County, this is done at the probation office near the courthouse.
If you have a positive sample/a “dirty urine sample,” on the first court appearance, a defendant will usually be admonished to stop using drugs. If a defendant provides a dirty urine sample on a subsequent court appearance, it suggests to the judge that a defendant has been using drugs while on bond. This is one of the ways people find themselves in jail, waiting for their case to conclude.
If you are arrested and you are a user of drugs, you should stop while your case is pending. The courts have heard all the excuses for dirty samples and will likely not believe you.See All Questions
