Ask a lawyer and get answers to your legal questions
Hello, and welcome to Just Answer. I'm one of the legal experts here, and I will be assisting you with your question.
I disagree with your parole agent's interpretation of the word "reside." My definition is broader than the one you've found, but legally, "reside" simply means to dwell permanently or continuously. It expresses the idea that it's a place to which you keep returning as your fixed abode. It means that you are occupying a place as your permanent domicile. In other words, you are living there. When you are merely spending the night in a hotel, you are not "residing" there.
For your sake, hopefully the prosecutor will likewise disagree with the parole agent's definition of "reside." I hope my answer helps you. If it has, I would appreciate it if you would give me a positive rating. It is the only way that I will receive credit for my work on this site. If you need clarification regarding my answer, please ask. Thanks!
