This is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard. The process clock begins ticking when the person is booked on the warrant. If they wait until the DA gets the documents that might never happen.
It is a process, however. The court may then require the person to post significant bail or the person will be held in custody until the home state issues a Governor’s warrant. This process is very slow.
The fugitive may either deny the charges and fight extradition, or waive formal extradition and voluntarily return to the demanding state. A person may remain in custody even though they volunteered to return to face criminal charges.
If the person decides to fight extradition, and hold a probable cause hearing to determine the identity of person being held on the warrant.
In those cases, the issuing state will need to present competent evidence that the person in custody is actually the same person named in the warrant. This formal process occurs between the demanding state and state that is currently holding the person in custody.
