My question involves criminal law for the state of: ID
My nephew is on probation in Idaho for theft. My cousin owns a business in Ohio that would like to hire him. My cousin and nephew have been working with Vocational Rehabilitation and his Probation officer for months and Voc Rehab has even issued the check for my nephew to move to Ohio.This is not just a job, but a career opportunity. At the last minute the probation Officer has decided that it would be better for my nephew to stay in Idaho and work for one of the PO's friends at an auto body shop and rent and live in an RV and my nephew will have to pay for propane to heat the RV (in Idaho in winter) that the owner of the body shop has. The owner of the body shop gets a 9,000.00 a year tax break for hiring my nephew and Voc Rehab will pay for part of my nephews pay. The job pays $8.00 an hour with no guarantees on the amount of hours per week he will work. His probation fees are 110.00 a month, child support is 250.00 a month, rent for the RV is 275.00 a month, approximate cost of propane for 30 days is 245.00 a month. By the time he pays all of that he has 84.00 left a month and has not bought gas to get back and forth to work nor has he bought groceries. Not paying for almost any of the above results in a probation violation.
The job in Ohio pays 10.00 an hour, 40 hours a week, company vehicle, company cell phone and he can live with me ( I am the aunt), and has family support.
I believe he is being set up for failure and the auto body shop is going to reap the rewards. Is there any legal course my nephew can take?
