someone was charged with a federal criminal charge (fraud to escape cigarettes taxes) in New York but has not been arrested yet. if he traveled to Canada is he/she going to be arrested there and brought back to the U.S jail ?
He may be detained in any foreign State that has a treat/compact with the US for extradition...
Canada without question does have such an agreement.
If he is detained or arrested it is highly probable it would be at the hands of local law enforcement, or Canadian Federal Enforcement of some kind.
At that point an extradition process would begin for the individual to be transported to the jurisdiction where the case will be heard, it will take some time. Generally the process is somewhat lengthy.
You should ensure to the best of your ability that the person has a good defense attorney waiting for his extradition, that would be able to communicate with law enforcement while he is in custody.
I wish you the best of luck with this situation...See question
Court failed to provide a decision in a completed trial in which Judge who heard the trial retired without issuing a decision despite having 5 months to do so, leaving case in a terribly unfair & unresolvable circumstance. Now impossible for court...
This is clearly a civil question, the CPLR in essence requires the deciding judge to be the judge who heard the evidence... Otherwise a mistrial should be declared.See question
How can my boyfriend get his case dismissed on Forcible touching if the police officer said he saw him on the train with his groin area touching a female and now they say they have the female as a witness too? And if the officer saw wouldn't he ha...
Well, it sounds like you're not vey likely to get a dismissal anytime soon given there are two witnesses.
Your best and only options are
1) neither the officer or woman show up at court when THEyre required to and eventually the case would have to legally be dismissed
2) have an excellent attorney handle your case and attempt to secure as much evidence in his favor to move the case toward a possible dismissal... However, given what you've said again Id say that may be somewhat unlikely.See question

I'm a first time offender arrested for shoplifting. What exactly is the process of arraignment? I know that I will be informed of the charges against me and I have to enter a plea of not guilty, guilty or no contest. Could I ask for an acd before ...
THERE IS NO GUILTY PLEA WITH AN ACD, the prosecutor must make the application to the court (technically your attorney can as well) and your attorney join in the motion/application.
The ACD requires no plea whatsoeverSee question
Just answer the question please
You can be prosecuted on the charge you're evading and be charged with bail jumping... You may also be affected at sentencing as the judge will consider the facts of your failure to appear. It may also affect your ability to remain out without bail as the prosecutor or judge may ask for different terms for your release.See question
I have a court date of July 17 for allegedly violating an order of visitation. My legal aid attorney says the ADA will likely dismiss the case and the order of protection will be rescinded. However, she says that I'll have to waitfor a Certifica...
Sadly, in all likelihood not. Although generally my experience is the disposition can be picked up a few days after the court appearance (2 days) and generally you can get expedited treatment for a greater fee... I've had transcripts turned over as quickly as 24hrs.
Hope this helps. Good luck
Make sure you get the court reporters contact information on that court date and let them knew you want an expedited transcript!

Yes. You very well may have a case. Nypd protocol requires specifically what must be done in searches... Ultimately as many accommodations as possible should be made to ensure same sex searches.See question
