Customer Question

My friend is in a Nevada jail but has a Ramey warrant in California. Should he fight extradition to California or waive extradition and take care of the warrant?

Good morning,I'm Doug, and I'm sorry to hear of your friend's situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. The Ramey warrant is just as valid as a warrant obtained by a state prosecutor. A judge looked at the evidence held by the police and found probable cause to believe that your friend committed a crime, and issued the warrant. There is little to be gained by fighting extradition and he will eventually lose the fight----so it really will be in his best interest to stop fighting extradition and agree to return to CA to face the criminal charge. He will in all probability be able to bond out and remain free to assist in his defense of the charge following his arraignment ion CA.
