    Default Extradition for a Probation Violation and Escape Charge

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: Colorado.

    - - - Updated - - -

    I am new to this forum and hadnt correctly asked my question. I was convicted of 2 misdemeanor domestic violence cases and walked away from work release and left for WI. I attempted to turn myself in for the charges and escape but was told CO won't extradite from WI and was sent on my way. Could this ever change? Could anyone explain why this happened?

    You may well remain a fugitive until you return to CO or until they decide that they want to pay for your extradition from WI. Since you are a fugitive on misdemeanor offenses, chances are they will not pay for your return. That means you will remain wanted indefinitely ... or, until you return to CO and surrender.

    As long as this warrant is outstanding, you can get thrown in jail every time you have police contact. You may sit there from a few hours to days/weeks till CO responds and says they are not coming to get you. Then you get released till the next time you have police contact, talk about being inconvenienced.

    Since your charge is a misdemeanor, CO may feel it's not worth the $$$ to bring you back. But that doesn't mean the warrant will be dropped, it will remain till you handle it.

    The downside to your story is, it could get very costly being in your boots.

    For one, if you're driving and are stopped for a minor moving violation, your vehicle will be impounded and you will be hauled off to jail. This could happen multiple times and the impound fees add up.

    Like said before, you can sit in jail for a few hours to a few days. This will result with lost wages for not being at work.

    Call a lawyer where the charges are pending and see if he can work something out for you.
