    Lawyers agree

    Answered . Can they come to FL to get you? Yes. Will they? Highly unlikely, given it is a misdemeanor offense. A MO attorney may be able to resolve the case in your absence and/or file the appropriate motions for early termination of your probation.

    Lawyers agree

    Answered . Yes they can but it is unlikely as no one will want to pick up cost of extradition. Hire a MO lawyer to try and resolve case for you.

    Lawyers agree

    Answered . Misdemeanor extradition is extremely rare. Can you be held in Florida? Yes, for a period of time.

    You should contact a MO lawyer to try to get this straightened out, perhaps with an extension of the probation. You may also want a FL lawyer to attempt to keep you out of jail while it gets worked out.

    I am an experienced Wisconsin criminal defense lawyer practicing in Madison (Dane County) Wisconsin. The laws in each jurisdiction can be very different. I cannot give legal advice over the Internet nor can I establish an attorney client relationship with you.

    If something I say disagrees with what your own lawyer is telling you, you should rely on your lawyer who is familiar with you, your entire case, the local courts and practices.

    Most questions are just better handled by an attorney familiar with the procedures of the courts in your area. Few, if any, legal matters should be handled via Internet communication. If you cannot afford an attorney, there should be agencies in your area that can provide discounted, or even free, legal services.
