Is it a violation of parole if I’m caught with someone that has a gun?

My buddy goes hunting a lot and he usually keeps some guns in his truck. He gives me rides a lot and I'm worried if we get pulled over for something if I can get in trouble for being in the truck with a gun?

    If you are a felon on parole and you are caught with a gun in a car it is 'constructive possession" and you will be arrested and possible convicted and go back to prison.

    Typically, orders of parole do state not to be in possession or be in the company of anyone who is. Yes, you may be violating your parole. If unclear on any conditions, ask your parole agent to clarify. Not admitting you had been, but to clarify for you.

    That depends on all the circumstances. It is safer not to use his rides under the circumstances

    You might very well find yourself in trouble. Why not ask your PO about the situation. You do not need to admit you have been in the vehicle or even seen the guns.

    When you were placed on parole you were assigned a Parole officer. The terms of Parole vary from person to person. Ask your parole officer.
