What will happen to a personif they move out-of-state while still on probation?

My friend is on juvenile probation in OH for a misdemeanor charge.  However, she has moved to CA. What will this result in? Such as other charges she may get? Will they extradite her back?

Many red flags go up when I read this question.  Is the person still a juvenile?  If the answer is yes did their PARENTS take them out of state?  If a juvenile has no choice but to move with their family an argument against prosecuting them themselves could be made but the parents would not be out of hot water.  However, if the juvenile is no longer a juvenile or an emancipated minor and they move out of state then they are most likely in violation of probation and that is a very serious issue.  Her probation could be revoked and she could have to serve the original sentence, she could be picked up and held and yes, she could be extradited.  It is possible to have probation moved to another state but she should have thought of that before hand.  Tell her to get some counseling asap.  Good luck.
