Hello,

Typically, states will extradite on felony matters. The level of felony and the nature of the crime can make a difference, but so does the local budget. If they have the funds to send a team of officers from Ohio to Tennessee, to pick up a defendant they will. It's entirely up to the discretion of the governor and there are no hard and fast rules.

If not, the inmate should be released as soon as Ohio says they are not interested in coming to get him, so long as there are no other holds.
