Q: If I'm locked up in Illinois and they are holding me for the state of Tennessee to come get me for extradition how

I waive that and get out and come on my own

Cayley Turrin answered on Jun 4, 2019

You can not get out and come on your own if the state of tennessee is willing to come and get you. Tennessee will let Illinois know if they are willing to spend the resources to come and get you and if they can not then you can go on your own.
