I would definitely consult with a practicing attorney in Kansas on that matter who is familiar with the extradition crimes to Missouri. You need a professional in person consultation not a paragraph on Avvo.

Yes, people can be extradited for misdemeanor offenses. It is unusual, but if the demanding state wants to come get you they can. If arrested on another state's warrant the arresting agency will telephone the other state to determine if they want to come get you. If they say they will come get you, you are asked if you will go willingly.
If you waive extradition the demanding state will have "a reasonable period of time" to come get you. This is usually interpreted to mean 10 business days. If they do not come in that time you can file a petition for habeas corpus to ask the judge to release you. If you do not agree to go voluntarily the State of Kansas will file a charge against you called fugative from justice. This allows Kansas to keep track of you until the other state prepares and sends a Governor's Warrant for your extradition. They have 90 days to get that paperwork finished and delivered. If it is delivered you can still contest via a petition for habeas corpus. If the paperwork does not show the judge would dismiss the case, although you could be re-arrested and go thorugh the whole process again.
You should contact an attorney to review the details of your situation. It is not really possible to go over all the ins and outs in this type of forum.

It does not provide legal advice nor does it create an attorney-client relationship. It does not provide the basis for making decisions about a course of action. Legal advice requires more communication and information than is possible in this format.
