Husband has charges from his past and was arrested for a warrant he didn't know he had. He is being extradited to TX possibly bc the officer said that's why they had to keep him. His paperwork says non criminal charges against fugitive in big bold letters.
Your husband has a far better idea of what unfinished business he has in Texas than we do. A non-criminal warrant could relate to a civil body attachment or warrant because if a contempt finding in a civil or family law case. Is there an outstanding child support obligation? Is there a civil judgment where he was served notice to appear and answer questions about his assets, and he failed to appear? Alternatively, is he a Key prosecution eyewitness in a criminal charge against someone else accused of a crime, and he's been avoiding service of a subpoena or was served and failed to show for trial? We can all speculate about any number of possibilities but your husband is the best source for providing any clue. A lawyer can certainly find out from the police what the warrant is for, and can call Texas to determine it. Texas has 30 days to decide whether to come get your husband or he'll be released.
This question is difficult to answer because there are any number of reasons why your husband has an outstanding warrant. As the other attorney suggested, it may be anything from an unpaid traffic ticket to a missed court date or a failure to make child support payments. Once more details about this matter are figured out, your husband should contact a lawyer to discuss his case.
