VIOLATION OF PROBATION WAS IN NM--AND I9 TALKED WITH THE INTERSTATE COMPACT PERSON IN NM TODAY AND SHE SAID THAT THE WARRANT FOR HIS EXTRADITION WAS NOT FILED UNTIL JAN 9TH--HE WENT TO JAIL JULY 30TH IN NM THEY EXTRADITED HIM ON FEB 21ST-THAT LOOKS TO ME LIKE THEY WERE BEYOND THE 30 DAY RULE AND HE DID NOT AND IS NOT GOING TO GET NEW CHARGES IN NM-HE IS IN VT NOW-I HAVE HAD SEVERAL PEOPLE SAY IT MIGHT BE FALSE IMPRISONMENT-BUT THE QUESTION IS WHY DID THEY HOLD HIM SO LONG BEFORE PICKING HIM UP AND WHICH STATE WAS RESPONSIBLE-DO Y9U THINK I HAVE A CIVIL CASE OR I SHOULD SAY DOES HE. HE DID SIGN THE WAIVE OF EXTRADITION-THIS IS A KID THAT HAD NEVER BEEN IN TROUBLE BEFORE AND HAS ADD/LD AND HAS BEEN IN PRIVATE SCHOOLS FOR THAT ALL HIS LIFE-HIS ORIGINAL CHARGE THAT WAS REDUCED TO A MISDEMEANOR WAS A FELONY
DOES THIS MAKE SENSE???? WHAT SHOULD I DO??? AGAIN HE IS 22 BUT I HAVE HIS POWER OF ATTORNEY THIS IS AN ATTROCITY BUT I WILL SAY HE DID VIOLATE PROBATION
