United States District Court, E.D. Washington
for Warrant or Summons for Offender Under Supervision
U.S. Attorney: George J. C. Jacobs, III
Defense Attorney: Federal Defender's Office
PETITIONING THE COURT
Honorable Salvador Mendoza, U.S. District Judge
issue a SUMMONS
probation officer believes that the offender has violated the
following conditions of supervision:
Number Nature of Noncompliance
Mandatory Condition #3: You must
refrain from any unlawful use of a controlled substance. You
must submit to one drug test within 15 days of release from
imprisonment and at least two periodic drug tests thereafter,
as determined by the Court.
Evidence: Mr. Johnson is alleged to have
violated mandatory condition number 3 by ingesting marijuana
on or about September 11, and 20, 2019, and by ingesting
methamphetamine on multiple occasions, to include having
occurred on or about September 11, 14, 20, and 25, 2019,
based on both urinalysis testing results and the client's
admission of such use.
27, 2019, Mr. Johnson signed his conditions relative to case
number 2:15CR00144-SMJ-5, indicating he understood all
conditions as ordered by the Court. Specifically, Mr. Johnson
was made aware by his U.S. probation officer that he was
required to refrain from any use of illicit substances, to
on September 11, 2019, the client reported to the U.S.
Probation Office in Spokane to submit to urinalysis testing
following the client's approved out of district travel to
see his family in Western Washington. Mr. Johnson
subsequently submitted a urinalysis sample for testing that
was determined to be presumptive positive for both
methamphetamine and marijuana. Mr. Johnson denied any use of
either substance and the sample was forwarded to the contract
laboratory for confirmation. On September 16, 2019, the
results were received relative to this test confirming both
the presence of methamphetamine and marijuana in the sample,
as well as confirming the sample submitted was dilute.
September 18, 2019, the client reported to the U.S. Probation
Office in Spokane, and ultimately admitted to finding a small
bag on the ground which contained both methamphetamine and
marijuana. Mr. Johnson indicated he used both substances on
several separate occasions until both substances were gone,
with his last use of methamphetamine previously occurring on
September 14, 2019, and his last use of marijuana occurring
on September 13, 2019.
September 23, 2019, the client again reported to the U.S.
Probation Office in Spokane, and submitted to urinalysis
testing, with the results this time showing as being
presumptive positive for methamphetamine, cocaine, and
marijuana. Mr. Johnson again denied any illicit drug use and
the sample was forwarded to the laboratory for confirmation.
Unfortunately, it was later reported that the contract
laboratory was unable to test the sample upon arrival due to
the condition of the sample once received.
September 27, 2019, the client reported to the U.S. Probation
Office in Spokane, and admitted to ingesting methamphetamine
