In exchange for money Baton Rouge court employee falsified 100s of drug tests, warrant says


A former employee of the 19th Judicial District Drug Court program is accused of falsifying hundreds of drug tests and alerting program participants ahead of time when they would be tested.

Nina Burage, 54, performed drug tests for the program, which allows nonviolent offenders to receive judicial supervision and substance abuse treatment in lieu of incarceration, an arrest warrant filed this week says. Participants are required to submit to random drug tests, according to program rules.
