Hello. My name is Alex.
Thank you for your question.
I will be happy to provide you with information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
I cannot comment on your specific case, but generally, when it comes to felony drug charges, most states would order extradition, so basically, contesting extradition would simply mean spending more time in jail waiting to be extradited.
It generally, doesn't look bad or has any impact on the pending criminal case in another state if the defendant waives extradition hearing and it is generally important to consult and retain an experienced local attorney where these serious felony charges are pending and to have this attorney represent your son during his criminal case.
You can find an experienced and skilled local criminal law attorney by using this established and reputable attorney information / referral websites:
When, choosing a local attorney to represent you, it would be a good idea to choose someone who has a practice exclusively dedicated to criminal law, has at least 10 years of experience and handled similar matters and also regularly practices before the court located in the jurisdiction where your matter might be heard.
I wish you the best of luck!
