    If I'm on parole and a urine analysis comes back dirty, what happens? Do I go back to jail or do I get a warning?

    It will likely amount to a breach of your parole which will result in a report being sent to the Parole Authority. The Parole Authority may then decide to:
    • take no action or
    • send a warning letter or
    • direct you to attend and explain or
    • revoke parole, and issue a warrant.

    It all depends on the conditions of your parole. If you are a required to undertake drug testing, I think it can be assumed you are required to not use or be in possession of an illegal substance. The NSW State Parole Authority does specifically state that they will issue a warning in relation to non compliance with the use of drugs and alcohol so you might be lucky.
