Living with a convicted felon while on probation? Any law against it?

Asked over 3 years ago - Miami, FL

While on state felony probation is it possible to live with a family member who was previously convicted of a federal crime? There was nothing said about it at sentencing, but do I have to wait to ask probation officer at first meeting? My living address must be given before being released from prison, but don't know if this is allowed!!

    Answered . If you still have an attorney representing you, contact your attorney. If not, you should look for a criminal defense attorney in Miami to hire. Ordinarily, as a convicted felon on probation (or supervised release, if federal) you may not associate with other convicted felons without prior permission. I suggest you both address this with your respective P.O.'s and seek permission. Failing that, get a lawyer to file motions with the respective Judges. It shouldn't be very complicated. Good luck.

    Answered . Yes. There is no law against who you choose to live with, unless, you are on probation for a sexual offense and have been registered as a sex offender which would limit you living with any minor children and also prohibit you from residing within a certain radius of schools/churches/temples and other establishments where children frequent.
