Sheriff’s Office charges Bronx man defrauding Probation

On Wednesday, October 25, officers of the Morris County Sheriff’s Office arrested a Bronx, NY man with Defrauding the Administration of a Drug Test at the Morris County Courthouse Complex.

Alfred Mota, 20, of the Bronx section of New York City, was providing a urine specimen for screening as a condition of his probation requirements. A Court Services Officer discovered that Mota was in possession of a device specifically designed to defraud a urine screen. The device consisted of a pouch containing yellow liquid, a hose and a jar containing yellow liquid.

“The Morris County Sheriff’s Office will continue to assist the Morris/Sussex Probation Division in any way we can to assure proper procedures are followed. Protecting the reliability and integrity of the drug testing process is essential to the criminal justice system and the judicial process,” said Sheriff James M. Gannon.

Mota was charged on a complaint summons and released with a future court date.

A criminal complaint is merely an accusation. Despite this accusation, the defendant is presumed innocent unless, or until, they are proven guilty in court.
