He violated his Parole by going to CA and then was brought back to CO for a hearing? Or he is still in California?
he is still in california going to school
Ah. But he has an outstanding violation? I mean is CO looking for him? Or is he now in CA with the permission of CO? Sorry I just want to be clear
he has an outstanding violation in co, and is california without permission
I see. Thank yoou
If you allow him to visit and CO Parole finds out that you did not turn him in, you could be charged with harboring a fugitive as well as obstructing Justice
So you need to ask yourself what that risk is that he would be found at your home while visiting
There is a warrant for his arrest, of course. And that will remain active until it is served
we have told them where in california he is
or otherwise recalled.
They are not interested in an extradition ?
Who did you inform?
the fugitive officer
I see. Well, if CO is not interested then you should have no problems with them locating him while visiting. However, they can still charge you. When does his Parole expire?
Well, it is a situation where he is a fugitive.
And they can charge you.
So you need to decide if they will find out he is visiting with you.
do they have jurisdiction in california
Well, the warrant does
He can be arrested on the warrant. Held and taken back to CO for a hearing. As to your charges, the CA District Attorney can charge you
It would not be CO.
But CA has obstruction of justice and harboring fugitive laws that would apply
Yes. You're welcome
