Because of the eviction and without a place to go, our client was rendered homeless. Upon eviction client returned to his home state where he lived in harmony with the law for nearly 20 years, all the while working and raising a family. Due to absconding to his home state years before, a warrant was issued for our Client for violating his felony probation for failing to appear at a probation meeting and for failing to update his probation officer as to his whereabouts. Client was ultimately picked up at his home for a separate incident and detained in his home state prior to being transferred to Florida to answer his violation of probation warrant.
