California Fugitive warrant

Recommended Posts

 A friend of mine has a fugitive warrant from California. She lives in Oregon and got arrested for an old violation of restraining order warrant. When they arrested her they told her she had a felony fugitive warrant from Cali. She went to court in Oregon and they dismissed the fugitive warrant and lifted her hold. She did her time for Oregon's warrant. If she gets pulled over in Oregon and they run her name, will they rearrest her for the fugitive warrant or will it not show up?

Thank you for your response. She knows she has to clear them but under her current family situation, she can't at the moment. The warrant is from 2011. It's a violation of probation for drug court in Santa Clara county.  I just wanted to know if their was a good possibility that it would show up in the system in oregon after being dismissed.

The extradition proceeding was apparently dismissed.  The warrant still exists and could show up in the future.  Obviously, your friend should be laser focused on strictly complying with all laws (not even a mile over the speed limit).

That CA didn't seek extradition or didn't timely provide the governor's warrant to OR does not take the warrant off the table.  It still exists and OR still has it and the power to arrest her on it at any time.  The ONLY way to prevent it is to appear in the court that issued the warrant in the first place.   BTW, warrants NEVER expire.

What typically happens when someone has a warrant in one jurisdiction,and is arrested in another,is,the officer or perhaps his supervisor,will call the other jurisdiction,and ask them if they want them to hold the arrestee on the outstanding warrant,pending extradition,or not.

The fact that the hold was released,could simply just mean,CA,had no intention on extraditing your friend back to their jurisdiction,not that the warrant has been dismissed.Your friend might want to consult with a Criminal Defense Attorney,back in the county where the warrant was issued to see,if it has in fact been dismissed,otherwise,she,could be arrested,and held as previously,should the warrant still show up in their system.

One other thing,is,it doesn't matter where she goes in the country,that fugitive warrant will follow here,as it's in a national database known as NCIC(National Crime Information Center.)
