No Misconduct Found in Cocaine Urinalysis Case

A Navy E-6 (frocked) tested positive for cocaine on a random urinalysis. At his administrative discharge board, we demonstrated the command’s gross noncompliance with the OPNAVINST governing urinalysis collection procedures. Specifically, we highlighted numerous chain of custody violations that occurred during the collection of our client’s urinalysis sample. Result: By a vote of 3-0, the board members found that the preponderance of evidence supported a finding of NO MISCONDUCT and our client was RETAINED in the U.S. Navy.
