He can then use Interstate Compact to transfer his probation to that state. He has to have a family in that state to be released directly to the state you move to, as that is one of the provisions of Interstate Compact.

Yes, I had begun to investigate the interstate compact and knew some the answers in your post. We are definitely in the Bible Belt now, but at least my family is known, know what happened, and that my son made a mistake, but he was a good kid.
In a new state, new area, he will be the dreaded new "sex offender? Thanks for your reply. How do I find what programs or classes that each state would require him to attend when he gets released?

They have such little regard for sex offenders that they forced a bunch of them to live under a bridge since they could not find a place to live because of the residency restrictions.

Under state law, there are two separate designations for those convicted of crimes mandating sex offender registration: State and local law impose restrictions on where certain convicted sex offenders may live after serving their sentence.
Florida state law prohibits those convicted of certain sex crimes against a child under 16 years of age from living within 1, feet of a school, day care center, playground, park or other place frequented by children.

The county also recently added "child safety zones" to its ordinance, which prohibits sex offenders from loitering within the feet extending from schools, day cares, parks and school bus stops.
The Miami-Dade ordinance has received national attention for effectively forcing sex offenders into homelessness with over 70 offenders living underneath the Julia Tuttle Causeway Bridge. Currently, there more than municipalities in Florida that impose greater residency restrictions on convicted sex offenders than required by state law.
