I buy and sell and had purchased items from an auction that was located in ny. I live in pa. The check was returned nsf. I am now getting calls from a detective in ny threatening me that he is going to obtain a warrant for my arrest and come to pa personally and pick me up and take me back to ny and put in jail. Telling me that I have commited a felony. He has also told me that he would have PA psp pick me up and extradite me to ny.
I would contact a lawyer in NY and explain your situation. If a crime was committed in a different jurisdiction and a warrant is obtained for your arrest, the PSP would honor an extradition warrant from a different jurisdiction.
An NY attorney will advise you better of what you need to do.
Extradition from PA to NY is certainly possible in a case like this. Whether NY actually asks to extradite would be decided by the NY county district attorney. Sometimes these cases are solely a matter of money. You may want to contact the Detective in NY to see what would happen if you were to pay restitution (if you are able to pay). If payment is not satisfactory then I would urge you to contact an attorney in NY to consult on the matter.
You should retain a lawyer who is licensed in that jurisdiction to speak with the detective and see if it can be cleared up without criminal charges being brought. If they bring charges, you certainly could be extradited.
