Man Pleads Guilty In Scheme To Falsify Urinalysis Results

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Federal authorities say a Las Vegas man who worked as a supervisor at a contractor facility that tested for drug use has pleaded guilty to accepting bribes to falsify urinalysis results provided to probation officials.

Prosecutors said 57-year-old Billy Joe West pleaded guilty in federal court Monday and faces up to 20 years in prison when he is sentenced Sept. 8.

The U.S. Attorney's Office for Nevada said West solicited and accepted bribes from people under federal probation supervisor in exchange for concealing positive and missed drug tests.
