Thank you for your inquiry.

The answer is, it depends. If this was a simple touching case, it will likely be charged as a low level crime, and extradition is unlikely. If the DA can secure a felony indictment, he'll certainly try to bring you before the court to face the charges.

As I said it was around 2008, I already been told I have a frliny warrent for me, it happens in Tennessee, I now live in wv, why would this be a non extriditsble warrent, I was never charged but was taken in and given a polygraph test which the cop told me I had to take or be arrested
Expert:  Peter Griesch replied 1 year ago.

First, he lied. You can't be arrested for refusing a polygraph.

Second, if you have an outstanding felony warrant, it means that they have charged you with a felony.

Typically, if you have an active warrant, you can be arrested in your own state, and held for possible extradition by the charging state. A DA will typically seek extradition if he has charged a person with a serious crime.

US customs when they brought me in while leaving Canada, said whatever the charge in tn was, was not extraditable and they were releasing me, but tvst I needed to find out what the charge is and take care of it..
Expert:  Peter Griesch replied 1 year ago.

If you find out the charge, I can offer you better advice. Without knowing the charge it's difficult for me to opine.
