Extradition is the legal process by which one jurisdiction surrenders a fugitive to another jurisdiction so that the fugitive can stand trial or be sentenced. While extradition can occur between the different states, federal extradition cases involve transferring wanted individuals to or from foreign countries. Facing possible extradition can be a frightening experience and you should never try to handle such a matter on your own. Instead, you should always seek assistance from a criminal defense attorney who has particular experience in this type of legal issue.
