Q: My son lives in MD and currently has three outstanding FTA warrants. He was in VA and Stafford County police picked him

up after his gf gave them info about where he was and that he has warrants in MD. He is now in jail there with three FUGITIVE, FELONY W/O WARRANT charges. What does that mean?

A: Means he could be extradited into MD. He should hire both VA and MD counsel. MD counsel such as myself can help with the cases in MD where he Failed to Appear for court. It means he skipped or couldn't make 2 court dates and the judge set in warrants for both. Not sure what "fugitive without warrant" means. Might be a VA term.
