  1. My son was busted on a DUI years ago and then tested hot for marijuana while on probation… long story but after 5 years of probation due to a few violations he will finally be off probation next month.

    This is after a few trips to the county jail and over $5K in fines.

    It’s not worth it, once your in the system around here it’s hard to get out.

    Sad part is he graduated with a criminal justice degree that is now worthless to him.
