can south Dakota extradite a misdemeanor to south Dakota
1 Answer from Attorneys
It's my understanding that most if not all 50 states plus the federal government and D.C. have adopted the INTERSTATE AGREEMENT ON DETAINERS, as a uniform law. My understanding is also that a local prosecutor can request that a fugitive (a person named in an arrest warrant) be arrested, and held for transport to the prosecuting jurisdiction. To my knowledge, this can be done for misdemeanors. In my experience, however, perhaps due to the cost, I have seen few extraditions of people wanted on misdemeanor warrants.
