Can you live with someone on probation if you’re on probation too?

I have been on probation for nearly a year as a result of a past drug charge. I live with two roommates, one who is currently dealing with a hearing on drug charges of his own. Both my own and his charges are simple marijuana charges. If he gets probation, can we legally live together or will one of us be required to move out?

    Yes, all can live together and all will probably need a sober environment and can help each other stay good on probation.

    The simplest thing is to review the paperwork you were given when the court entered it's judgment. If you don't have that you should be able to look at a copy from the court available for representation and consultation.

    It will depend on the court's sentence but the general rule is felons cannot associate with other felons. Misdemeanants are usually not faced with a similar prohibition.
