My son lives in...

My son lives in Texas with me on a felony probation transfer from Wisconsin. Over the last 1 1/2 years of his 2 year probation he had 3 violations. 1 random drug test where he couldn’t pee in front if the officer and 2 that were too diluted. Wisconsin is retaking him but he has no where to stay or no means of transportation. Can we fight this?

Lawyer's Assistant: What state is this in? And can you tell me a little more about the charge?

We live in Texas and the charge was in 2015 in Wisconsin. The charge was narcotics possession (heroin) and bail jumping but he’s been clean since and was in jail there for 3 months.

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

The Texas probation officer said she reported the violation to Wisconsin and has emailed my son paperwork of who to report to in Wisconsin. She told me they want him back.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Just need to know if this is something we can stop, since he has no one to stay with. He’d be considered homeless and I’m fearful it would put him back with the people he used heroin with again. It’s not healthy for him to go back especially since he has 3 months of probation left.
