My question involves criminal law for the state of: Louisiana. My husband is on felony probation for DWIs. He was working in Galveston, TX seven on and seven off, so he would be in Texas one week and back home in Louisiana the other week. He had not been reporting to his probation officer, which is what the warrant was originally for. He was pulled over in Galveston and arrested on the warrant. The probation officer has been to our house one time and did not even come in. Has never called him and had four phone numbers for him, never sent him a letter or anything saying that she was trying to contact him. I do understand that it is not the probation officers place to contact him, but aren't they supposed to visit and make sure there are no firearms in the house and things like that? Just because he was working in Texas, does this mean that he was absconding? The absconding charge is the reason he received three years.
