Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Hello! I am glad to assist you but first i am going to break your question down a little further to answer all parts. 1. If the person was IN JAIL when the gun was found, then I do not see the violation. I assume that the individual was registered as living at the address where the gun was found. Whether or not they are in violation depends on the terms of the probation/parole. Generally an individual on felony probation cannot own or possess a firearm. Where they could POTENTIALLY violate him would be the POSSESSION, but the issue is if the individual was IN JAIL at the time, there is no possession, and if it is registered to someone else who lives in the house i do not see a violation. 2. I only see them charging him with a violation of parole if he was truly in possession and/or he owned the weapon, otherwise there does not appear to be a violation. Lastly, about moving it depends on the crime that they origianlly committed. Some times it is as simple as asking the parole officer if you can move out o state but for some offense you must apply to be moved
