California Penal Code section 1550.1 grants you the right to a hearing before granting extradition in order to determine whether you are the correct person named in the demanding state’s warrant. Often times, people lie about their identity when arrested, and these names turn out to be held by people who were not involved in the crime at all. It is also possible that through simple human error, the demanding state has mistakenly identified you in their demand for extradition. Your attorney can argue that you are not the proper person the demanding state wishes to extradite and therefore the demand for extradition should be dismissed.

Invalid extradition documents

The demand for extradition documents filed by the demanding state must comply with a strict set of formalities. Any error in the signing, identification information, or charging information contained in these documents could potentially render them invalid and ineffective. Your attorney can inspect the demand for extradition documents for any such errors and challenge the extradition by showing that the documents prepared by the prosecutor of the demanding state are legally defective.

What can an extradition lawyer do to help me if I am facing extradition?

Here are just a few examples of what an attorney can do for you during the extradition process:

  • Argue for your release on bail while awaiting return to the demanding state
  • Argue for a reduction of your bail amount
  • Arrange alternative representation for you in the demanding state
  • Argue for your immediate release if the demanding state does not “pick you up” within the statutory time period. If this occurs you must immediately be released.
  • Attempt to negotiate with the prosecutors in the “demanding state” in an attempt to have them withdraw their request that you be extradited.
  • Provide you with guidance on how to deal with law enforcement officers who are transporting you to the demanding state and what to expect when you get there. Your attorney can also ask the court to order the transporting officers to refrain from questioning you or trying to elicit any incriminating information that could be detrimental to your case.
  • If bail is granted Wallin and Klarich can refer you to experienced bail bondsman who by law will charge you only 8% (vs the normal 10% in bail fees). This could save you thousands of dollars.
