Don't forget.... all of your posts on City Data are available for anyone to see. Looking back through your posts is quick and easy as there are so few. You may be a wonderful person but starting off by asking about extradition back to Maine when you posted about planning to leave Maine for South Carolina would make people suspicious. Perthaps it's your traveling companion with the law problem. You say you have a good job yet are looking for a job and a place to live in Spartanburg South Carolina. You also seem to be apologizing for being a "damn yankee" to the South Carolinian locals... If you start off not being honest with people you're asking advice from don't be surprised when they don't give you a serious answer or perhaps form a judgement of your situation.

As I understand it (and I'll admit that I'm no expert here), but I think it all depends on the state where the charge stems from and in this, I don't think Maine is any different than the others. If that state puts into their system that "Jack" has a warrant out and they'll extradite, it doesn't matter where Jack goes. If his name gets run for any reason (a little fender bender could do him in, or even a job application these days), he'll get arrested and will await the pleasure of a ride back to wherever. If that other state says there's a warrant out but they won't extradite, Jack may not get brought back but he does run the risk of sitting in jail a few days while everything is sorted out.

Personally, I'd do what the other posters suggest - pay the fine, do the community service, whatever. Just does't seem worth the hassel . . .

you are an implant?

A little heads up for all you outlaws out there. Any contact with the law could burn you. A few years ago I found an item in the street which I thought was of value to the loser so I turned it in to the police station which was a few blocks away. Before I could leave, the officer behind the window checked my name and dob on his computer. Luckily I was "clean".

I'm guessing this would be too easy?

Either that, or it must have been one whopper of a misdemeanor.

A simple google can answer the question. Of course, you'll need to read through the gobbledygook legalese to get the answer - it might take a while.

A state is responsible for its own extradition charges.. If your wanted in Maine and are caught in Florida it is Maine who extradites you back... and vice versa.. So it all depends on where the charges stem from. and What they decide the furthest distance they will extradite is.. (by state)

Also most warrents that are issued through the national data base will stipulate what states they will extradite from.. Usually neighboring states for small crimes and then it fans out..

it has been my deep desire to get all 49 states to extradite from every state but california and send ALL wanted criminals nationwide running to Ca.. who needs that state anyways



ALSO......Now it doesnt mean you get live free... You still have an active warrent on you. There was a fella here in Maine wanted somewhere in the nw.. so everytime he got stopped red flags would be raised and evariably he would be detained until everything could be cleard.. once in a while depending on how clear the information about the arrest warrent was being translated he would end up being arrested and processed before they realized he was not going to be extradited.. this happened more then once

This was some time when I was in LE... I suspect things have changed.. better technology I am sure things are more streamlined.

Bwa-hahahahahaha!!!! I love it!

And the info you posted is accurate as recently as 2006. That's the last time I was involved in law enforcement. If there's a hit on your name when an officer runs you, at the very least you're going to be held up where ever you are until they get it lined out.

They'll have dispatch go back to confirm the info - name, date of birth, any scars, marks, tattoos, etc., and if available your social security number. Any info that was entered by the entering agency when the warrant was put into NCIC, which is the national crime computer.

If the info matches up they'll send a request to the agency that entered the warrant and let them know they've got you and ask if they'll extradite. Then you get to sit and wait until that agency responds. By law they can only hold you............. half an hour I think it was?? Anyway, they'll wait for that agency to decide if they'll extradite you. As FC stated, it's at that agencies cost to have you returned for court for the warrant.

It depends on the charge and how far you are as to whether they'll extradite. Some agencies are more willing, some less. However, I fully support sending them all to Cali and then sawing if off from the mainland. I tried to rep ya FC but it says you've already received too much love from me already. LOL
