    I am facing an 18 month prison sentence for a class 6 felony among other charges, none of them are violent or aggravated. However, I jumped bond and have now been arrested for a fugitive warrant out of Boulder, CO in Arkansas. Will Colorado extradite me for these charges?

    If I owe state restitution, will my state refund be intercepted or both my federal and state refunds be intercepted.

    What happens when someone chooses to waive their right to an extradition hearing?

    What rights does a fugitive from justice have?

    How long a state have to extradite someone who has waived their right to an extradition hearing?

    Does a state have the option to decline extraditing someone?

    They will extradite for any criminal offense ( or can) it is often the agency that has you charged to decide if they want you detained to have you held, depending on how far away you are. For example one state over, most likely they will come for almost anything other than a parking ticket. If you are 1000 miles away, they may not come get you but wait till they catch you again closer.

    What happens if and when they discover you , you will be held for a short period while they decide if they want you held to come get you. If they decide not to get you this time you are released but the warrant stays valid and active.
    If they say they will come after you, you are then held pending them to come get you.

    Since there is little defense to a extradition hearing, the same thing happens either way, they come and get you and take you back.

    You have the right to a fair trial.

    The state you are in, merely holds you, till the other state comes and gets you, I have seen it take 3 or 4 weeks before, normally a week or so.

    No, you can have a hearing to prove for some reason this is not legal, but all states and even many nations have agreements that they are required to allow the person to be picked up
