How Does The Extradition Process Work?
When a crime occurs and it is suspected that the defendant is in a foreign country, they could be extradited. Often, this person is located and taken into custody. This is due to the treaties that the United States has with other countries. The United States then sends papers to the country they are found in and explains why they need to be brought over. A defendant may challenge their extradition. Our attorneys can explain this process and what it looks like. People can be extradited for all types of crimes. Common examples include:
- Drug and narcotics offenses
- Accusations of money laundering
- Terrorism charges
- Gambling and racketeering charges
- Aiding a terrorist group by providing them with support or materials
- Murder charges
