Can you leave the state while on probation in Ohio?

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!

  1. 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.
