I'm on D.O.C in Washington state and moved to New Mexico and am wanting to know if they will extradite me back to Washington if I have a warrant
I would imagine so, but you should check with the attorney who represented you in Washington or with another attorney who practices there. You need to deal with this.
The response I have provided is general in nature, and does not create an attorney-client relationship. My practice is based in Rhode Island, and the law and practice in other states or jurisdictions may be different.
The answer to your question usually depends upon the language on the warrant. Some warrants are made executable in all fifty states. Some are executable only in the state or origin (in your case Washington). In Wisconsin, felony warrants are usually enforceable in all fifty states while misdemeanor warrants are enforceable only within the State of Wisconsin.
Relocating to New Mexico when you are on supervision in Washington without permission of your agent is not considered "moving". It is considered absconding or fleeing. I strongly advise you to go back to Washington as soon as possible and take care of the warrant. If you turn yourself in it will go much better than if you are taken into custody on the warrant. If you have a residence and job in New Mexico (legitimate job with a paycheck and tax withholding), you might be able to get your supervision transferred to New Mexico. But this isn't going to happen if you run away from supervision in Washington for any extended period of time. Face up to this like an adult and deal with it, or it will haunt you for a long time.

By indicating that you are "on D.O.C." in Washington state, I take it to mean you are on parole. Therefore, your Washington P.O. must have given you permission to travel to NM under condition that you are not waiving extradition. It's very likely you are subject to returning to Washington state voluntarily to deal with the warrant. Otherwise,iIf you get picked up in NM they will most likely hold you for extradition back to Washington state. Take your travel documents and warrant info to a criminal defense attorney in NM quick.
