Aggressive South Florida Criminal Defense Lawyer

Extradition is a process that involves a defendant being surrendered by the legal authority of one state to the authority of another. A person can be arrested anywhere in the state of Florida for a crime he/she allegedly committed in another state. Chapter 941 of the Florida Statutes states that it is the duty of the Governor of Florida to have arrested and delivered to the authorities of any other state any person charged in that state with treason, felony or other crime, who has fled from justice and is found in Florida. A person arrested in this situation is considered a fugitive and is subject to extradition to the demanding state under a fugitive warrant.
