I'm in upstate NY and I've never lived with anybody on probation. His mothers husband also drinks beer. He luckily has no desire for alcohol so he would never ever have alcohol in his urinalysis! These are the only two places he could live! Do I have to hide my empty beer cans or can I have my beer I my fridge?
If one of his conditions is not to have any alcohol in the home, then there should not be alcohol in the home or he should find somewhere else to live. Hiding evidence of breaking a condition of probation is the quickest way for him to wind up back in jail.

If he is not allowed to have alcohol in the home then he runs a risk living in a place with beer in the fridge.
