If someone on adult supervised probation absconds supervision and moves to another state and they get a job, will they get caught?

If so, please explain how they would find out. also how hard do they look for someone on probation? (dist. of IV controlled substance to a minor, was original conviction) would they search out of state for you? Would it be considered a major priority case?

There are a multitude of ways that someone can caught after absconding from probation. It would not be ethical for an attorney to discuss them with someone who is contemplating doing so, since we would potentially be assisting you in committing a crime.

Good question. Sooner or later a person who violates his or her terms of probation gets caught either through a background check, a stop by a police officer of an investigation by law enforcement. Based upon what you have written your crime and violation of probation would not be a high search case for you in my opinion should you violate probation. I suggest that you do not violate the terms of your probation.
