One of us is on parole in sacramento county, the other in Shasta county. He has 1 year left on parole, I have 2 years left. neither of us have ever had a violation.
People have all kinds of rights they have to give up when they accept the conditions of parole. If one of your conditions is to not associate with felons or other parolees, or some other condition that separates you from another person (like a travel restriction), you need to obey that condition and not associate with that person. Once both of your are off parole you can do as you wish.See question
On my last day of swap will I be tested
I can't tell you if you will be tested as you complete the Work Alternative Program, but you need to ensure that you are in compliance with all the terms of your probation, and its usually a term of your probation not to drive with any measurable level of alcohol in your system, so if you show up intoxicated, and you drove there, it can be an issue. Best to discuss with the attorney that represented in you in your case.See question
REPOST FROM WRONG CATEGORY- Yesterday morning, I heard a loud knock on our front door and heard our housekeeper talking with a man. I went over and was greeted by two men in plain clothes who asked for my son by his first name. I told them he's at...
The best place to start is to get your son an attorney - perhaps bringing your son to an attorney competent in federal criminal law for a private, confidential conversation would be helpful. Perhaps your son will disclose to an attorney, in a confidential setting protected by the attorney-client privilege, might get your son to divulge if he was involved in any criminal conduct that could be a concern. This could be anything from drugs to an internet related crime. Best to not have your son just stick his head in the sand and hope it goes away. Sometimes it does, but it likely will not.

According to Utah Code 76-1-304, the period of limitation does not run during any period of time in which the defendant is out-of-state following the commission of an offense? For example, if someone committed a crime against a resident of Utah...
It appears that the statute of limitations would not run while the accused is out of state, however, there are other considerations such as pre-indictment or pre-charging delay that may apply. Also, while I don't practice in Utah State court, the statute is broader than just SOL to bring a crime, but also affects pleas as well. Best to get a consult with a Utah state practitioner, in person.See question
I got arrested 6yrs ago and was wondering if I still had to put I was arrested on my apartment application since it's been so long.
you should go to the CA Attorney General website, order your own criminal history and see what shows up. That's the best way to verify, however, it's unclear whether your mere arrest, rather than a conviction is a reportable event.See question
My brother recently was sentenced to 16 year in prison and was told there was an INS hold on him. He was born in Los Angeles CA I want o know if that is even possible for him to have or if its a mistake. How do I find out what to do and how to go ...
If your brother is a US Citizen, it would have to be a mistake. He should contact his counselor in the prison at which he is housed in order to start the process of removing the hold. The Presentence Investigation Report might be a good place to start because it should have verified his place of birth and US Citizenship.See question

My significant other is being held on a probation violation for supposedly failing to obey all laws (which he has proof to dispute) but it's been almost a week and no charges have been filed on anything other than the probation violation, which is...
Yes. A probation violation can be alleged without any underlying crime charged. In fact, often prosecutors elect to forego charging a new crime when charging a probation violation will likely result in jail time. The logic is as follows: probation violations don't come with the same rights as a charge on a new crime. Probation violations are not entilted to a jury trial and only entitled to a lower standard of proof than new cases.See question
