For several months, Jennifer Severs’ children stayed with their father after she lost custody due to a drug test allegedly showing she had methamphetamine and marijuana in her system. Her mother, Judy McGinnis, didn’t believe the test and reached out to the doctor listed on the paperwork. It turns out he never tested Severs’ sample.
McGinnis, according to WTVY, worked to right the wrong, which eventually led to the arrest of Brandy Murrah, who forged drug tests for potentially thousands of victims.
“It’s hard when your children get snatched away from you,” Severs told WTVY.
Severs sent another sample to a different lab, which came back negative and she was able to get her children back.
Severs had been in a custody battle with her ex-husband when the falsified test results occurred, even though the Troy resident said she doesn’t take any drugs. It took months to correct the original, fake test results and get her children back.
