Q: My son is being held in jail on bond with no indictment and no charges for 3 months now.
He was stopped for going left of center and was caught with drug paraphernalia and a warrant in Arizona and a bond was placed on him. Arizona does not want to extradite. There are no charges or indictment. The judge needs to be made aware that he needs to drop the bond so he can be released. Without a charge he cannot get a public attorney or anyone to make the judge aware of his situation.
A: THERE ARE HOLDING PERIODS AND SPECIAL RULES FOR EXTRADITION. YOU MAY WANT TO CONSULT AN ATTORNEY FOR YOUR SON.
