if there are outstanding warrants, the stay active until served or recalled. you will need an attorney to have those warrants Quashed. it is not something you can do
Let me refine my Question. The Papers sent to Idaho said that there were four failures to appear. Oregon did not extradite on the four orginal charges. Does this mean that the other charges were quashed and he has four failures to appear, or are the original charges still active after ten years.
failure to extradite does not mean the matters were closed. it only means they do not find it within their interests to spend all the necessary money to bring him into Oregon. however, if he enters Oregon with the active warrants he can be arrested and then he will need to stand trial.
if there were other charges other than the four that Oregon has as outstanding and there are only 4 FTA's then it would mean the other charges were dismissed at some point.
There are no other warrants other then the 4 FTA. Is FTA a Felony or misdeamor, and do you have an Idea of the lenght of incarcinartion for FTA in Oregon.
Thank you very much for your time.
the FTA depends on the charge. it is not a separate charge. it is a warrant to stand on the charge they failed to appear on in the first place.
there was some confusion.
FTA warrants are based on the charges the person did not appear for. they are not separate charges. if there are FTA's they are for the outstanding charges on which he did not appear in court
