i need clarification. is he on parole in utah and left the state ? has he been picked up on a recall warrant for leaving the state?
if he left the state of Utah without the benefit of an interstate compact - then Utah is bringing him back - they actually have no choice. but what you can do is get as many letters as possible written to the utah parole board stating why he left, who he was living with, where he was working, etc - they will look at those letters and take them into consideration. the utah parole board can and more than likely will revoke his parole - i wont sugar coat this for you - leaving the state without permission is a very serious violation. but the letters will help him with any good conduct credits that he has which can be applied toward reducing his sentence. it gets complicated. he can also have an attorney/public defender present at his revocation hearing - the hearing will be held in utah because they have jurisdiction.
