ChipChip Posted August 11, 2011 Report Share Posted August 11, 2011 Hi all. I am on probation for an operation while intoxicated. I was sentenced in January to a year probation with weekly drug testing. I have been legal to smoke medical marijuana for about a month now for pain from a surgery I had on my shoulder. I have had not had any violations while on probation, I have completed my court ordered 80 hours of work detail, been cleared by a counselor in outpatient and I have paid all of my fine. When I went to discuss my medical card with my probation officer she told me that I would need to file a motion with the court to have my sentence altered. I had heard from other people who's probation officer just gave them the go ahead to medicate without appearing in court. When I spoke with the lawyer who represented me initially he told me it would cost me between $1200-$1500 for his services alone. I am wondering if anyone has any experience in a situation like this and if they think I would be able to file the motion without representation and how much it would cost me in court fees? Thank you for any advice in advance. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
