My question involves an arrest warrant from the State of: Wherever.
Ok, Mr. Knowitall...I've been reading posts about felony arrest warrants and basically have learned that if you have a felony arrest warrant you can and will be extradited from wherever you are back to where your warrant is from to face prosecution.
But...I know of three seperate examples that suggest otherwise.
1st, I personally know a girl who has two felony arrest warrants in the state of Utah for trafficking marijuana for a couple of years now. She was just pulled over in the state of Oregon, given a ticket and released.
2nd, A friend of mine's dad left the state of Oregon after recieving THREE (3) charges of manufacturing meth! He left for Oklahoma 5 years ago, has been arrested for DUII and even jailed in that state. No mention of the three class A felonies he has here though...
3rd, Another friend of mine left South Dakota after being busted with a marijuana grow operation and simply packed up and left for Alaska. That was over 20 years ago and again, has visited jail there and was never extradited.
So what's the deal? Sure they can't comfortably go back to the states of their original crimes, but what evidence is there indicating that running isn't a legitimate option?
Sincerely, On the Lam
