Does a paroled sex offender have to get permission from their parole officer to move to another address?

Asked over 1 year ago - San Leandro, CA

This is a recent parolee and and was supposed to be released to their parent's address. Instead, the parolee was released to a city and county far from the parolee's parent and is now looking at possibly becoming homeless. The parolee would like to live with their parent. Can the parolee go and register with in the city the parent is living and reside there?

    Answered . When you are on parole you cannot live where you want. You have to get permission. If your parents live in a different county you would have to get your parole transferred before you could move. Additionally, as a sex registrant, your residential options are further restricted. You need to go to your parole agent and talk with him/her immediately
