How Extradition Law Can Impact You
Interstate Extradition occurs when a client is in one State, and is being returned to face criminal charges in another State. Since all activity occurs within the United States, your criminal rights apply in both the extradition proceedings and the criminal prosecution. The primary issue you need to decide is whether you should fight the extradition or waive the process, and voluntarily go back to face the criminal charges.
International Extradition occurs when a client is in one country, and is being returned to face criminal charges in another country. If you are extradited from the United States back to another country, the criminal procedures of that other country will control the process you will face in the courts of that country. The primary issue you need to decide, is whether there is a benefit to you in waiving or in fighting the proceeding.
