Extradition on fugitive of justice,how long does texas have to come get someone being held in iowa
1 Answer from Attorneys
There's no set time in which one state can extradite if a person has a warrant outstanding and has fled to another state where they are apprehended. On the other hand, there are budgetary considerations-it costs money for Texas police to come to this state and get a governor's warrant, which is something of a formality. They may have an informal rule that they won't extradite for a crime below a certain level.
Like I said yesterday, I have seen bail granted in such cases when the crime is not a serious one but that decision lies with the court. Your attorney should be vigorously pursuing the matter.
