Has an extradition warrant been filed against you? If so, you may have an increased chance of conviction depending on the jurisdiction. In some instances, you may be extradited to a jurisdiction that may increase your chances of prosecution.

If you currently have an extradition warrant against you, it is extremely important to immediately seek the help of a good criminal defense attorney who understands the process and can navigate you through the legal processes involved with extradition.

Miami extradition attorney Evan Hoffman is a former prosecutor, so he knows how the extradition process works from each side of the system. This can work to your advantage if you have Mr. Hoffman as your defender. Extradition warrants may involve both federal and state law, making it an extremely complex issue.

We are here for you. If your case is in Miami call (305) 928-1669, if your case is in Broward County call 954-737-3004 now to get started.

What Is Extradition?

Extradition is the practice of one state transferring custody of an arrested person to another state in which the person is accused of having committed another crime in response to an extradition request or warrant. In some instances, more than two states can be involved if a person is accused of having committed crimes in multiple states.

The process involved with extradition can be very complicated because it involves laws from multiple states and can even involve federal laws. A lot depends on which states and legal departments within those states are involved. Some states have better relationships between them when it comes to working together for extraditions than other states do.

In some rare cases, extradition can be requested from a country outside the United States if a person is accused of having committed a crime in another country, and that country has an extradition treaty with the U.S. In those cases, it is a must to have an attorney because state, federal, and international laws can all be involved, and those cases also involve the U.S. State Department.

What Is the Rationale behind Extradition?

Extraditions are most often carried out because one state has a stronger case against the person than another state, thus there is a better chance of conviction, or the person has committed a greater crime in another state (or country.) However, once the person is finished with proceedings in one state, they may be extradited back to the other state to face charges there as well.

What Are the Consequences of an Extradition Warrant?

It all depends on the circumstances involved, but generally, an extradition means that a person will face a greater charge and a greater chance of conviction if extradited to a second state. Some states may also have stiffer penalties than others. For instance, one may have the death penalty while the other may not. So, it may be in the defendant’s best interest to fight the extradition.

In some cases, plea bargains between the defendant and the various authorities of any states involved can be reached.
