Said sample was sent to Toxicology for confirmation. On July 15, the defendant confirmed the positive results for the presence of Cocaine at 899 ng/ml with a cutoff of 150 ng/ml.

Recommendation: This is the defendants’ second violation for using Cocaine. She was instated in March 2011. It is apparent that she has a problem with indulging in illegal substances.
