I'm sorry to hear that.

Was your son's criminal case heard in Indiana or Illinois?

(..sometimes a case is heard in one state, but a prison term is served in another state).

Genrally courts do not transfer probation from one state to another, however it is possible under the criminal interstate compact.

In order to have his request to transfer approved he'll need to demonstrate that he has significant ties to Indiana and that it's where his social support is.

Some points to include in his request in order to demonstrate this would be: that family members reside in Indiana, a job opportunilty awaits him there, an educational or professional school he's interested in is there, he has a church there, etc.

The judge should theoretically be interested in helping your son succeed in his probation, hence demonstrating the social support and opportunities awaiting him in Indiana would be the most persuasive route for getting his interstate transfer request approved.

You would also want to make sure he has a lawyer representing him with this, to draft and argue the motion persuasively on his behalf.

I hope that helps!
