HONORABLE ROSANNA MALOUF PETERSON, U.S. DISTRICT JUDGE
PETITION FOR WARRANT OR SUMMONS FOR OFFENDER UNDER
incorporate the violation(s) contained in this petition in
future proceedings with the violation(s) previously reported
to the Court on 09/06/2018, 09/26/2018, 10/12/2018,
01/08/2019, 06/07/2019, 07/18/2019, 08/07/2019, and
probation officer believes that the offender has violated the
following condition(s) of supervision
Nature of Noncompliance
Special Condition #6: You
must abstain from the use of illegal controlled
substances, and must submit to urinalysis and sweat
patch testing, as directed by the supervising
officer, but no more than six tests per month, in
order to confirm continued abstinence from this
Supporting Evidence: Mr.
Vaughn is alleged to have violated special condition
number 6 by ingesting marijuana on or about August
14, 2019, based on sweat patch testing.
On April 19, 2018, Mr. Courtney Vaughn signed his
conditions relative to case number
2:14CR00021-RMP-19, indicating he understood all
conditions as ordered by the Court. Specifically, Mr.
Vaughn was made aware by his U.S. probation officer
that he was required to refrain from the use of
illicit substances and fully comply with urinalysis
and sweat patch testing as directed.
Specifically, on August 14, 2019, Mr. Vaughn was
contacted at his current place of employment in the
community by the undersigned officer, in part to
allow for a new sweat patch to be applied to the
client, as previously ordered by the Court.
On August 26, 2019, the client reported to the U.S.
Probation Office as previously directed by the
undersigned officer to allow for the removal of the
sweat patch. Mr. Vaughn was subsequently taken into
custody on the day in question, based on the
Court's warrant dated August 23, 2019.
On September 3, 2019, the results were received
relative to this testing, which confirmed the patch
as being positive for both cocaine and marijuana. It
should be noted the client's documented level for
cocaine is to a lesser degree than what was
previously reported to the Court on the petition
dated August 23, 2019. As a result, and based on the
proximity of dates tested, it should be noted this
positive result could simply be residual. The testing
also verified the presence of marijuana, which was
previously undiagnosed in laboratory testing based on
the client's previous sweat patch application and
removal. Such a result would appear to substantiate
the client's recent and previously unreported use
U.S. Probation Office respectfully recommends the Court to
incorporate the violations) contained in this petition in
future proceedings with the violations) previously reported
to the Court.
