Well, generally, yes, they do. If TN chooses not to exercise extradition
, then Texas will not hold you. I do not know who told you that Texas does not extradite for stalking - Texas will extradite for any valid misdemeanor
or felony warrant (Texas Code of Criminal
Procedure §51.13). Texas will even extradite for a family court
warrant of not paying child support (Texas Family Code §159.801).
Technically speaking, if you have a warrant out for anything
, Texas may extradite. It depends if the original state/jurisdiction where the matter is pending wants the Defendant back. Texas, like most other states including TN, has enacted the UNIFORM CRIMINAL EXTRADITION ACT which essentially allows the states extradite for any reason as long as there is a warrant. Finally, United States Constitution, Article IV, Section 2 states that a person charged in any state with treason, felony, or other crime
, who shall flee from justice
, and be found in another state, shall on the demand of the executive authority of the State from which he fled, be delivered to the state that requests him.
Yes, if you are stopped for a traffic stop - or go to the DMV to get your license renewed, etc - you may be arrested on the spot. It happens all the time. That is what officers say when they say "you have a warrant out for your arrest" when they stop you for a traffic violation.
