Q: Can someone transfer probation to another state the day They get released from jail

My husband had court Monday and took probation he lied and Sid he had no one to pick him up so the jail is bringing him to court Friday to b released to probation. He is saying he is moving to Florida that day. Could a judge have already agreed to his move even tho he hasn’t been released and started probation

A: No, that is not a likely scenario at all. Transferring probation out of state requires a lot of forms to be filled out and the other state accepting the probationer. In addition, you have to provide an address where you will be living and that address has to be verified as well. It is doubtful the process has even been started, in my opinion.
