  2. During any part of which you are fleeing to avoid prosecution, custody or confinement after conviction for a crime that is a felony, under the laws of the United States or the jurisdiction in the United States from which you have fled or, in the jurisdictions that do not define crimes as felonies, is punishable by death or imprisonment for a term exceeding 1year regardless of the actual sentence imposed; or

  3. During any part of which you violate a condition of probation or parole imposed under Federal or State law; or
