Re: extradition laws
FL has 30 days within which to file the necessary papers and pick him up. That time can be extended another 30 days for good cause. If they don't do it in that time, the law requires he be set free. If they do it properly, he can be returned to FL to stand trial on the charges for which the warrant was issued.
