Dear Mr. Burt,
When you write, "Fleeing the state would result in the issuance of a warrant, which would subject you to immediate arrest and extradition back to Ohio," doesn't that only apply if the original warrant reads, "Extradite national," or something to this effect? My understanding was that only certain charges warrant interstate extradition on 1st degree misdemeanors.
Dear Mr. Burt, Thanks for your legal answer. I just have a couple more questions about your reply.
1) When you write, "Fleeing the state would result in the issuance of a warrant, which would subject you to immediate arrest and extradition back to Ohio," doesn't that only apply if the original warrant reads, "Extradite national," or something to this effect? My understanding was that only certain charges warrant interstate extradition on 1st degree misdemeanors.
2) How long would it take and how would I go about getting psychiatric prescriptions filled in jail? My cousin was incarcerated in Texas and was separated from his medicine for many months. I don't think he ever got back on his original prescription, either.
Thanks for writing back -- good to hear from you.
I will be glad to comment further -- many thanks for your prompt payment.
I hope that is of some additional help and that things look brighter for you soon.
Take care and thanks again for choosing JustAnswer®!
Looks like at least a fortnight without meds. That can cause a patient such as I to go into a manic or depressive episode. It also doesn't say that the jail doctor would prescribe the same meds. Rather, a new evaluation would be done. Most unsatisfactory a policy... Thanks for your clarifications.
Yes, I must agree. There are many gaps in the system, unfortunately.
I do hope all works out for you in this matter.
