Q: If you are extradited from one state to another one do you have to do probation still in the first state
I was incarserated in california and when my
prision time was done i was extradited to utah for
felony charge. now im done with utah, and
sentenced but now california probation is saying i
have to do probation in california i was told since
i was extradited california relinquished me and i
would not have to do probation im confused and
need to know my rights
A: When you were extradited, California relinquished their right to hold you, but they did not relinquish their right to supervise you. If your sentence included a term of probation or if a condition of your release was parole, then California has the right to supervise and can issue a bench warrant for your failure to comply with that supervision. However, you should contact an attorney in order to determine if California would agree to allow you to comply with probation in Utah or if they would allow whatever you did in Utah to satisfy the requirements of California.
