State/Country relating to Question: New York
This is one of those weird areas of the law. Most probation and parole officers do not consider weekend stays as dual residence. The key is where you spend the majority of your time. Have you asked the probation officer?
no did it last year with out telling them. went last weeekend cops were waitng at ferry when i got off was harassed a little and then my family family told me 2 cop cars sat infront of my house from 12midnight to 2 am like waiting for something that night i was there. very odd feel like they may night watch or violate me. have drug conviction.
Whether or not you have another "residence" is really a judgment call by the Probation officer but it has been my experience that judges lean over backward to agree with them. My suggestion would be to have the lawyer that represented you on the underlying case call and get an ok, or get an ok yourself. My gut feeling is you would be all right but with the facts you've just written it would make me nervous if I were you.Thank you for allowing me to assist you.
