Can you leave the state while on probation in Ohio?

Asked over 2 years ago - Cleveland, OH

I am on probation in Cuyahoga county (was sentenced a couple weeks ago). I have a wedding to go to and am leaving on Friday, March 30 and am coming back on April 5 (at least if I am allowed to?) My flight was booked in January and I honestly didn't think about probation until now. Are you allowed to leave, and if so, what is the procedure in doing so? Thanks!

    Answered . You must ask the court for permission to leave the state or you will be in violation of your rules of probation. Talk to your probation officer asap.
