Good evening,When an individual leaves the state without fulfilling probation or parole, or resolving criminal charges following an arrested, he is termed a "Fugitive from Justice". A person who is categorized in this fashion is typically subject to arrest and extradition on a warrant to the demanding state or country for purpose of responding to the criminal justice system. Defendants may be extradited based on a wide range of charges. Thus, this isn't a charge that carries a possible sentence -rather, it is a means for NJ to request that South Carolina return him to the state to face prosecution for his charge(s).Furthermore, there's no way to know for sure how much time a person will do. Very few crimes have minimum mandatory sentences, rather, a sentence is often given by the judge based on a variety of factors, such as a person's prior criminal record and a recommendation from the prosecutor.
