    Default Governor's Warrant

    Hello, We Are From New York, I Have A Question That Im Looking For An Answer For. My Friend Was Arrested 5 Yrs Ago For Stealing Items In Missouri From Walmart. He Left Missouri And Came Home But Never Went Back To His Court Date, He Has Been Arrested Here And The Warrant Came Up While The Other Case Was Dismissed He Was Held Awating A Governors Warrant Which Never Came. He Was Released. Again Arrested And Case Dismissed And Warrant From Missouri Poppped Up When The Ada Called There To Find Out What They Were Going To Do Their Answer Was That They Werent Coming Out To Get Him, So He Was Released. Is There A Statue Of Limitation On This/ If They Didnt Come Out To Get Him Several Times That They Were Notified What Can Happen To This Warrant OR CASE?

    He has already been charged with the crime so the warrant can stay active forever. Many states will not extradite for a misdemeanor but will simply leave the warrant active. It will continually cause a problem and if he gets stopped in a state that Mo IS willing to extradite from, he's toast.

    Obviously if he ever goes to Mo he is subject to arrest for the warrant.

    I would plan on this happenning every time he gets stopped for anything.

    I am not familiar with the tern if givorners warrant but typicall what is happening is that the state you are detained in, when discovering they have a person with a warrant in another state, notifies that state.

    It is then up to that state to apply for extradition to their state. I would presume this is the governors warrant you speak of. I don't know of the 90 day limitation and not sure where to discover that specific info. I was under the impression that 30 days was more typical.

    The state with the outstanding warrant has the option of spending the time and moeny to extradite to their state or not. If they will extradite, they make formal request to the holding state for approval and then come pick up the wanted person.

    If the state with the warrant doesn't want to spend the time and effort to pick up and transport, which is often not done for misdemeanors and even some minor felonies, simply does not take the neccessary actions to retrieve the wanted person.

    This can happen forever. When a warrant is issued, there is typically no SoL which would rescind the warrant. The charging state will simply wait until they can get the guy a bit easier.

    IS IT POSSIBLE FOR THIS STATE NY HOLD THE PERSON FOR OVER 30 DAYS AWATING IF THE GOVERNORS WARRANT WILL BE PRODUCED AND THEN EXTEND IT ANOTHER 30 DAYS AND CONTINUE FOR ANOTHER 30 DAYS = 90 DAYS UNTIL THIS WARRANT IS PRODUCED. MY FRIEND HAS BEEN IN INCARCERATED FOR OVER 30 DAYS ALREADY
