Good morning. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. Seeing how you have an open case and are out of bond, with these specific conditions, you could not just relocate and move home to New York. I say this because you would need to get permission from the court, since you do need to comply with the drug testing and are subject to the searches, so if you leave the State, they would not have a chance for these to happen. As such, you would need to get permission to relocate and then have NY supervise and monitor you, if they desire, while the case is still open. This is not a situation whereby you are on probation and it can be transferred, since the case is pending and NY is likely not going to want to incur the burden of monitoring you on pre-trial release.
