My husband got picked up in north Texas for an extraditable warrant to Colorado. The warrant is for felony arson charge from 5yrs ago that he had unsupervised probation and community service. The warrant specifies it is for probation violation. He did not complete the community service during the 2 yr probation period and when he went to his court date in 2017 he was no longer on the docket and found out they had changed the court date to an earlier date without notifying him. Earlier this year he tried to address the issue but was in contact with the wrong court system (municipal vs county) and was told he had no warrant. I assume the warrant is either for not completing the community service, or not appearing in court. Will Colorado actually extradite him for this charge?
No one in this forum can speak for the state of Colorado, but I don't see why your husband would not be extradited. Contact an attorney in the county in Colorado where the case is pending. Good luck.
Probably but that's up to the sheriff in the Colorado county his case is in. I would retain an attorney in that county to see what they can do to help. They may be able to get a bond set or to convince the DA to agree not to extradite.
