My ex husband is on felony probation. It was a 2 year probation with a fine. In September the 2 years is up. However he moved and has not paid his fine. There is a vop warrant for him but he seems to think if he can avoid arrest til after September his probation will run out. Is this true?
No, it is not true. As soon as the warrant was issued, the time stopped running. Whenever they catch him, he will have to face the probation violation. He should turn himself in.
