Extradition in Florida - How Long Can a Person Be Held?

Extradition is when one state has a warrant, but the person is arrested in another state under the warrant. Today, law enforcement can find an out-of-state warrant on their computer, which can take a few moments or less. However, it can take weeks or months to complete the extradition.
