Hi,

I'm Zoey.

I've reviewed your post. Please be patient as I may need to research for you, and it also takes time to compose and type a reply.

The Interstate Compact regulates the transfer of parolees and probationers throughout the US. Unfortunately, however, the Compact can only be used for transfers of felony probation. So you've been informed accurately.

That said, however, It's also possible for his lawyer in Virginia to resentence him on the misdemeanors to something that will allow him to remain in Florida, perhaps in conjunction with an outpatient treatment program once he finishes his current treatment. It's worth trying, since he would appear to have a stable support system in Florida.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
