So you got yourself into some legal trouble, and now the government wants to extradite you to face charges. I get it — this whole situation is scary. Believe me, I know what you’re going through. But don’t panic! There are things you can do to fight extradition. This article will walk you through the basics so you can understand the process and start building your defense strategy.
Extradition is when one country transfers someone accused or convicted of a crime to another country for prosecution or punishment. It happens through treaties between countries that outline the terms for transferring fugitives. For example, if you commit a crime in the U.S. and flee to Canada, the U.S. can request that Canada extradite you back to face charges. The countries will cooperate through an extradition treaty.
Extradition is one of the main ways that countries cooperate to fight crime. It helps ensure that people who break the law don’t get away with it by hiding in another country. Extradition treaties build trust between nations and show that they are united against criminals evading justice.
The country requesting extradition starts by sending a formal request to the other country where the person is located. This includes evidence of the person’s guilt, like affidavits describing the crime. The requested country reviews the request and decides whether to arrest the person. There’s usually a hearing where the person can argue against being extradited. If the requested country agrees, they will transfer custody of the person to law enforcement agents from the requesting country. Then the agents transport the fugitive back to face charges.
Fighting extradition is complicated, but possible with the right defense. Here are some common arguments lawyers make:
Don’t go through this alone — get an experienced lawyer on your side! Look for attorneys with specific expertise in international extradition cases. Key things to ask:
A knowledgeable lawyer can poke holes in the case against you and highlight any violations of law or treaty obligations. They may also negotiate with the requesting country to drop or reduce charges to avoid extradition.
Once hired, your lawyer will start reviewing the charges and extradition request to identify potential defenses. Some actions they commonly take:
Your lawyer’s aim is to prevent the extradition entirely or at least buy time to build your case. They may be able to get charges reduced to crimes not covered by the treaty.
If the court approves extradition despite your lawyer’s efforts, you’ll be transferred to custody in the requesting country. Your lawyer can help ensure proper procedures are followed:
While not ideal, getting extradited with your rights protected gives you a stronger case going forward. An attorney may be able to get charges dismissed or reduced once you are in the requesting country.
Being arrested for extradition is scary, but you have rights. With an experienced criminal defense lawyer, you can avoid extradition entirely or at least be extradited safely and minimize consequences. Don’t take on this fight alone. Contact a lawyer today to start building your defense!
