My niece was serving a i-year probation in Polk Co Florida.

My niece was serving a i-year probation in Polk Co Florida. After 5 months of successfully doing so, she failed a random UA - her regular PO was on vacation that week. She attempted to reach her PO the next week to no avail but did go back to her drug counselor the day it happened and started seeing her again. The very next week, she received a letter saying she has to appear in court in California (her home state) for two serious felony charges there (her FL charges are misdemeanors, with felony probabation for 1 count of drugs, brought down to misdemeanor in court). She tried to get a Travel Pass, her PO did not call her back so she left FL to go to CA to face these charges head-on. The day she left and is five hours away driving, her PO texts her she "is in big trouble now, he's going to turn her in and has contacted CA to let them know so the detectives will pick her up" (he's a gem, lemme tell you). She has never been given a travel pass before to see her 3 kids in CA, so she did not expect him to do so now. AFTER she left, three days later, he issued a Felony Warrant for her arrest. She has been arraigned in CA and must stay within the state, reporting there each Monday until hearings are done. The Florida Warrant is for her failing a UA. How can she settle the FL Warrant from California???Paula Bernd, her aunt
