I have been told by the police that 2 of the crimes, firearms theft and check forgery, were federal offenses and that would be justification for the County to pay for the extradition from CA to WA. It's not that they don't have the money, which would be under $2000.00 (he stole over $11,000.00), but whether or not they "want to" spend the money...there's politics envolved here, and if the victim had been a person of "influence", the decision would likely have been different. My offer to pay was only in the event that the County PA's Office would not. In addition to the theft, the criminal failed to appear for a jail sentence (for which there is already a misdemeaner warrant issued - in state only), he is wanted for unpaid child support, unemployment fraud, $5000 in unpaid fines, and about $10,000 owed to 2 different collection agencies.
None of this is final at this time, but the PA's Office has been sitting on this for over a month...they have been promising a decision for the past 2 wks., but always have an excuse for a delay...today they assured me there would be an definite answer by next Wed.
I'll bet your advice is to be patient and wait to do anything else until I find out for sure what their decision is. The evidence against him is indisputable, so what reasons could they possibly have not to issue a nationwide bench warrant for his arrest and find a way to pay for the extradition??
