Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Good afternoon Jason, I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. I'm afraid that you must have misunderstood what you learned earlier. While many states will not extradite for a misdemeanor, or a non-violent felony---simply because of the cost and the hassle involved---no state has, or ever has had, a policy of non-extradition. All states will extradite when they want to. In fact extradition is in most part a federal law, not a state law. The U.S. Constitution and federal law govern interstate extradition processes. Article IV, § 2, Clause 2 of the U.S. Constitution is codified under 18 U.S.C. 3182. Perhaps what you were thinking of was states who have not adopted the Uniform Criminal Extradition Act (UCEA). Those states are Missouri and South Carolina, but they still have extradition provisions within their own legal systems. You may reply back to me again, using the Reply to Expert link, if you have additional questions. I wish you the best in your future, Doug
