Re: Can You Be Extradited on a Bench Warrant
It is up to Arkansas whether or not they want to extradite from Kansas (or anywhere else) or not. For a robbery charge, chances are they will. Your friend can fight extradition in a Kansas court, but it is unlikely it would be successful.
Your friend basically has two choices. He/she can continue to live as a fugitive, spending his/her time looking over his/her shoulder and wondering if/when something is going catch up. Or, your friend can retain a lawyer in Arkansas who can advise him/her of options, negotiate a sentence agreement, and negotiate a surrender.
Behind the badge is a person. Behind the person is an ego. This is as it should be, person at the center and ego to the back.
