My probation officer gave me permission to transfer my probation

This answer was rated:

My probation officer gave me permission to transfer my probation to florida. he was new and didn't realize how difficult the process is to do this. before he realizes this i quit my job and calls me the day before i am to leave and tells me i cannot go. i then cannot find work and go about 3 months out of work living out of my car and not making restitution. my cousin offers me a job in another state and i go. i then move and they violate me. i have continued to make my payments down here even though a warrant is still out for me. the crime was non-violent grand larceny. l owe 19,500 after originally taking 51k
