PITTSBURGH (AP) - A contractor who reported the results of court-ordered drug screenings has been charged with taking a bribe to report “clean” test results for criminal defendants in the Pittsburgh area.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review (https://bit.ly/1GLHv4R ) reports the Allegheny County district attorney’s office charged 28-year-old Roderick Thomas Diggs, of Pittsburgh, with bribery and other crimes. Online court records show Diggs hasn’t been arrested and doesn’t have an attorney.

Diggs no longer works for Allegheny Health Inc., which conducted court-ordered drug tests under the supervision of the county health department. County probation officers took over drug testing after Diggs allegedly took a $60 bribe in July to report to the court that a defendant passed a drug screening that the defendant really failed.

Court officials are trying to determine whether other test reports might have been falsified.
