Out of state arrest warrant and detainer? State will not extradite.
Ok, I posted my situation on another thread about the possibility of going back to DOC on a VOP. My question here involved how DOC treats a misdemeanor arrest warrant from North Carolina detainer wise. NC has said they do not want to extradite, but the DA is unwilling to just dismiss the charge (lying to a cop about something stupid), at this point b/c basically she is being hard nosed until the election in May, then she will make deals again.
NC faxed an arrest warrant to my PO, and I was violated, in the violation warrant from my MD po, she clearly states NC will NOT extradite.
So with the very real possibility of going back to DOC, I want to make pre-release, and want to know how this will hold me up. After my VOP warrant in MD was served a few weeks ago, the jail let me go ROR, and nothing was said about NC, I was also pulled over and the cop never said I had an outstanding warrant, although I know I clearly do. The max is 60 days jail time, but I have a lawyer down there trying to dispose of it.
Will the misdemeanor warrant affect my security level? Work release ability? Parole eligibility?
I know there is a speedy trial thing you can file in DOC and if the receiving state does not act, DOC lifts the detainer, but based on what I said above, does anybody think it will be an issue?
All I can say is from what I know...is that Maryland will extradite this side of the Mississippi. I was in California, got arrested but was on the run because I violated my probation back home. So if I would have been on the eastern side of the US... they would have extradited me.
