Im currently on 3 yr probation for stealing and i got out of jail because someone said they would take me into their house and help me get started onto the right path. my family is messed up and they drink and smoke. My probation said i cant be around alcohol drugs or even around that house. but i got kicked out of the other persons house because of something between the husband and my mom. so the wife got mad and took it out on me, by kicking me out because she couldnt get to my mom. so i had no where else to stay so i was forced to move back into my moms house. i havent smoked or done anything to violate my probation except by moving back into the house. but i had no other choice. can i get sent to jail because of this???
If your probation says you are not to return to your mothers house, then staying at your mother's house will be a violation of your probation, regardless of why you are there. Certainly is is better that you are there and NOT drinking (another violation), but you are in the house, and I tend to doubt that the house is absent of alcohol so whether drinking or not, you are around it. I would find another place, to live - any place that would not be a violation of your probation - as quickly as possible.
As to whether you will go to jail, it is certainly a possibility if the PO discovers you are in violation of your probation. Get yourself in compliance as quickly as possible.
