I do not practice in NM, but I may offer some general advice. Both you and your boss need to look to the rules of your probation. Generally, associating with known felons can result in a violation of probation in and of itself.
Of course, you could always ask your probation officer about this. But, you may end up shooting yourself in the foot.
I suggest you hold off until both of you are off probation. If it is true love, then there should not be any rush.
